This is a great product. Use it in Homeschool. This is biblically based and very informative. Teaches all the basics. The only drawback is it is a little outdated as to how women should dress, but that's no big deal. It teaches how a young woman should behave and take care of her home and children. But if you are not wanting something that is biblically based, this is not for you.

This was really an awesome program. I used it for my homeschooled high schooler. It was truly a great program to prepare him for the little details you never think about until you find yourself deep in the middle of real life. I would recommend this to any homeschooler, and even those whose kids attend public/private schools. The schools really don't prepare kids for real life anymore.

Has everything you need to guide your kid to adulthood. Bills, checking, saving, job hunting. All of it. Great way to teach them about real life scenarios.

Am using this as part of an Econ course. There are a lot of projects in the book that are very practical and are helping my teenager to better understand person finance.

Life Prep for Homeschooling Teenagers is a fabulous starting place for any panicking parent of a teen. I know. I am one of those panicking parents.

As talk around the house turns to driving and plans for the future, as a homeschooling mom I wonder if we have focused too much on the reading and math. As I look at my growing kids, I'm wondering if diagramming sentences is a good lesson for life or should we focus on balancing a checkbook?

Thankfully, Barbara Frank has blazed that trail and written a book to to share her advice. Life Prep for Homeschooling Teenagers is laid out in an easy to read fashion, with information for the work-bound teenager as well as the college-bound teenager.

Personally, I was impressed with the reading list included in this book. The list is just the sort of "out of the box" reading list that I was looking for to fill in some educational gaps. It's easy to focus on books that colleges consider to be "the classics" but Ms. Frank's reading list covers books ranging from Having Our Say: The Delaney Sisters' First 100 Years to the PBS video series Affluenza (which I have seen and enjoyed).

For me, the best part of Life Prep was the projects. Written in a workbook type format, this section allows teens to dream big, then springs a little reality on them. Got a teen looking at a fancy car? Have them explore price comparison, car purchasing and securing insurance using the study prompts found in the book. Got a teen dreaming of a job? Have them look at taxes to see just how big that paycheck might end up being.

If you have a teen you want to prepare them for all aspects of grown-up life. That can be a stressful thought. For me, I'm hoping to relax a little, enjoy my years with my teen and rely on Barbara Frank's Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers.

Barbara Frank says that, Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers is a "parent-friendly curriculum for teaching teenagers to live as morally and financially responsible adults." That is exactly what it is; and, how I wish it had been available for my own children!

The spiral-bound, 100-page book includes lessons for the work-bound as well as the college-bound teenager. It teaches them life skills by having your teen read, research, and complete real-life projects that are related to the concept being studied. By the time your teen completes the curriculum, he will have had hands-on practice in buying a car, getting a loan, purchasing car insurance, learning about credit cards (the good, bad, and ugly!), purchasing health insurance, renting an apartment, grocery shopping, paying utilities, buying a home, paying taxes, and keeping a budget. For college-bound teens, there is also a project on college applications and writing the college essay.

Here's an example of one of the projects. For the Rent Project, you child has to look up rentals in the newspaper, but not just in your own town, but also in several other areas. After your child completes his research on rent, deposits, late fees, amenities, etc., then he must create a comparison chart of his findings and discover for himself what the best deal is. I love how Barbara not only requires the student to research the information, but the student must also create lists, charts, graphs, etc. to discover where and how to get the best deal.

An excellent reading list of books recommended for teenagers is included, along with ways to evaluate your student's reading assignments. The books on the list cover dating, personal living, money, investing, and the working world. If you have a slow reader and/or a child who does not plan on attending college, I recommend using Barbara's reading list as your child's literature requirement, rather than having them read Shakespeare and the like. It will be much more beneficial to his life.

If I had had this book when my children were a teenagers, it would have saved hours of time locating resources and planning curriculum to teach these topics. Your child needs this type of real-life education in order to be successful, whether he goes to college or not, and Barbara provides an easy way to get it. I highly recommend Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers for every homeschool family.

I am a homeschooling mother of 5. My oldest just recently started high school. Before reading this, I was overwhelmed at trying to figure out how to prepare them for all the real life situations that would be staring in their faces after high school! This book has helped me to stay focused on teaching them what they needed to learn. My 15 year old loves it and my 14 year takes a great interest in the topics as well. My 15 year old (a girl) is already saving her money for a car. I highly recommend this book to anyone considering homeschooling their teenagers thru high school, and even if you are already almost done schooling them, it will still be helpful!
