Is it a good idea to let my teen homeschool while we are at work?

Homeschooling Alone

Some teenagers feel relieved to be taken out of a peer-dependent environment and are pleased to do schoolwork while mom and dad are away in order to keep this latitude. Other teenagers fare better working part-time jobs during the day and doing their academic work in the evening and on the weekends.

Teenagers are at a perfect age to benefit from an apprentice situation or mentoring relationship. If you are thinking of allowing your teen to homeschool while you are at work, my only suggestion is to make sure that you know your teen very well. You must have a good relationship with him or her—you must be able to talk to each other without the normal hindrances that come between teens and parents or the experience will be difficult.
