Format: Paperback
This is a book that came highly recommended to me from several people, so I was anxious to check it out. I have to say that I was sorely disappointed. Some readers may be drawn to Ms. Shelton's conversational style (she likens her book to having coffee at her kitchen table with a friend) I found it to be unprofessional and a bit haphazard. The book focuses more on Bible verses and finding God's will for your student's life than anything academic. Again, that may be the approach that some parents wish to take when embarking on this journey, but I found the content to be lacking in terms of practical advice or direction.

I also found this book to be somewhat anti-college. The author gave numerous reasons why students should stay away from college, then almost as an aside, presented some information that parents might need to prep their kids for college if they were positive this was the correct direction for their student. Perhaps if you already know that your student will not attend college (or join the military, or any other path that requires specific academic requirements) this book will speak to you and encourage you on your journey. As a parent who is unsure of their children's paths, I would like them to be prepared for whatever direction they choose, and that means college prep courses and record keeping.

This has been an outstanding resource for me! It has helped me to relax and step-by-step plan my teens high school program. I am still working through the process, but feel very comfortable and delighted with Barb's approach. I HIGHLY recommend this book to all parents who desire the best for their kids high school years!

This book is packed full of information about homeschooling in the high school years, in fact, in any part of your homeschooling journey.

The way the author writes is so friendly, it is like you are sitting with a friend talking about the struggles and fun of homeschooling children. She may not always been grammatically correct(she marks where she is incorrect, for learning writing), but she makes you feel calm and gives you the encouragement that you need to continue helping your children learn in their lives.

She fills her book with the learning ideas, scheduling and organizing ideas, and and ideas for how to follow state guidelines. But, she constantly assures you that you do not need to do ALL of her ideas, just pick and choose, rearrange and create your own ideas for your own family. This is constantly pounded in, so as to help you to not feel pressured with all the new information.

If you ever have a chance to thumb through the book by getting it from the library or a friend, you will immediately fall in love with it. So order it or borrow it, either way this is a book that you need to actually read to believe.

Halfway through my oldest child's freshman year I came upon this book. It really helped me get a handle on high school and gave some great ideas for developing courses, etc. It was definitely worth the money spent!

There are all kinds of homeschoolers. Those that use "fluff" material and loosely put together subjects (which is fine for them, no flaming here) and those that use the most college bound material they can find (which is where we fall in the spectrum.) No matter where you fall in the scope of your curriculum, you will find this book useful. A lady in my homeschool group recommended it to me. I purchased it a couple of years before I really needed it. Now that we are doing a transcript, etc. I have gone back to this several times. It has timeless info in it. You will not regret it for the forms alone! Look at HSLDA's website. They still recommend this book in 2014. Just for some ideas, it is well worth the purchase price. It is overwhelming to read all at one time. Take it in chunks and get it BEFORE 9th grade. It is not anti college bound. If anything, I thought it was very pro college?

My bad -- I didn't notice that the copyright date was 1999. I would not have bought this book if I had realized that it was so old. The author's homeschooling philosophy is, of course, timeless. But this book was recommended on the HSLDA web site for its strategies on high school record keeping for homeschoolers. On that level, I found that advice to be very paper-intensive and time-consuming, and, while there were some useful tips, not worth the overall price of the book.

If you're the kind of person that wants to read an informational book that's to the point and doesn't ramble, then don't get this. She has good info and lots of forms to copy or use as you want, but the writing style was a bit too much for me. Too much rambling for my taste. Another book that does the same thing, but I liked a lot better was "High School @ Home" by Diana Johnson.

This book is so user friendly. It is really great for boys, having ideas for that one who doesn't like sitting still doing book work. There is a lot of information and it can seem overwhelming but you can pick and choose to fit your needs. Great tool for highschool
