Teens Financial Responsibility In A Debt Driven World

We have had experience with hearing from people that it is terrible that we have made our children pay for their own car, drivers training, and monthly car insurance. It is really quite amazing to me that people now a days feel that they should expect someone else to pay for everything for them. It doesn't teach our children anything to have everything handed to them and not to have to earn things. Due to the way we think debt in our world is absolutely astronomical. Here are a few facts to … [Read more...]

Homeschooling High Schoolers, It’s Easier Then You Think

One of the questions I often get asked is about homeschooling high schoolers. I remember when we first started homeschooling our kids, we said we would follow God's lead on what to do with our kids when they started high school.

I was also worried that they wouldn't get into college without a diploma from an "accredited high school". Little did I know at that time that this was very … [Read more...]
