Is personal finance and budgeting a required class for your homeschooled high schooler? It is in our homeschool. 
I believe that money management and time management are two very important subjects that are often ignored. Both are subjects that our children will need great skills in for the rest of their lives! Hoping that they just figured it out on their own is wishful thinking. 
Children learn from adult modeled behavior. Is it any surprise then, if parents don't handle their money well, their children will not either? And if you look at statistics, most don't ever figure it out, at least not how to manage it well.
The average American household carries $137,063 in debt, according to the Federal Reserve's latest numbers. Yet the U.S. Census Bureau reports that the median household income was just $59,039 last year, suggesting that many Americans are living beyond their means. (Nov 13, 2017)
It is so easy to fall into debt and extremely difficult to climb out from underneath. Maybe you haven't done well at handling your finances. Take this class with your teen. Learning together is always beneficial to all.
My two youngest teens and I, together, took Foundations in Personal Finance High School Edition for Homeschool. Purchase through Amazon here.
They also took Foundations in Personal Finance through Unbound for college credit through Lumerit Unbound . Because they had taken a Dave Ramsey class in high school, this class was quite easy to accomplish.and extremely beneficial. It reinforced through repetition, the importance of excellent personal finance skills.
My middle daughter took Lumerit/Unbound class in high school as well as each summer while in college at a private Christian Univerisity. She graduated from college in three years honors!
My youngest took the Financial Class through Unbound dual credit courses.
I have already seen great financial choices made in their teen and college years. Whether you use courses through Dave Ramsey or elsewhere, please do yourself and your child a HUGE favor. Learn how to handle your finances well!

Enjoying the journey,
