Now that your middle school student is at an age where he or she will look for greater independence, it's a good time to begin teaching practical living skills. These skills will help give them the independence they want, and they will be grateful to you for recognizing and acknowledging that.
*Some ideas for what to teach them include how to balance a checkbook, how to create and stick to a budget, and nutrition, to name just a few.

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).
