"Our middle-schooler is driving us crazy!" We hear it all the time! That's certainly how we've felt, Every. Single. Time (remember, we're guiding our eighth through these years now). Compliant kids turn combative. Diligent students disappear into a fog. Faithful children fill up with doubts. Everyone said, "Just wait till they're teenagers," but nobody warned us that sometime between 8 and 14,…
Boys Bummed by Math
Our initiation into homeschooling middle school - and the pangs of early adolescence - happened in math. Our oldest son was an early reader and just rocketed along with elementary math.

When a Child is Talking about Death
My six year old is constantly talking about death and how he'll die soon and it worries me. He doesn't seem afraid of death; he says he's going to heaven. I'm concerned, though. What do I do? I would sit down with him and try to figure out what's on his mind. You never know…
