Some days, it feels as if my young children will never grow up, and ten days feel like ten years. Some days, I blink and they are grown and graduated, and ten years flew by like ten days. So how do we create the best path for our kids from birth to life after graduation?
Classes outside the home that they can put on their transcript also help them learn how to answer to someone else. Options could be a junior college class during high school, a class by another homeschool mom, or community classes.
Find volunteer, community service, missions, or apprenticeship opportunities in their interests and giftings.
Prepare them for college writing and note-taking skills. Kim Kautzer has excellent insight on preparing for college writing here.
Gap years: Maybe your child needs a year off after high school to consider his possibilities. This is a good time for extended mission trips and volunteer work or exploring different careers. This gap helps them decide where their passions are and what other schooling they may need to continue in their given direction.
