July 18, 2008, Newsletter Issue #237: Homeschool High School Students Faith Often Benefited By Homeschool Environment

Tip of the Week

For many homeschool high school students, the absence of peer pressure allows them to stand firmly in their beliefs and to follow their own path. Additionally, many homeschooled teens use a Christian homeschool curriuclum, such as Sonlight Curriculum ®, that help to reinforce their religious foundation, making their spiritual foundation that much stronger. While the teen years are still filled with different adjustments in hormones, moodiness, irritability and self-identity struggles; for many teens the academic independence and freedom experienced during their earlier years greatly reducing the internal and external struggles associated with teen angst. This is not to say that every homeschooled teen is perfect and every public or private school teen is a misfit, but rather that the environment of the homeschool teen remains constant during their academic and personal growth while the public or private school teen has to deal with many different and fluctuating outside influences.

Thanks so much for reading the the Homeschool Tips Newsletter.

The new 2006-2007 Sonlight catalog is hot off the presses! In addition to new educational resources, we've also made some significant improvements to our curriculum, such as expanded flexibility in Reader choices for Levels K through 2.

The catalog also provides several articles with helpful homeschool tips. For example, check out the "Top Ten Goals" article (pp. 146-147) which can help you think through your personal philosophy when it comes to homeschooling. And "Why we use certain books that some homeschoolers won't touch" (pp. 144-145), that gets into some pretty important issues about the content of books. And you won’t want to miss “27 Reasons NOT to Buy Sonlight”—a perennial favorite (beginning on page 148).
