If you've read many books about homeschooling, you've probably started to notice that a lot of them are saying exactly the same thing. Not many stand out from the crowd as being different, offering unique and truly helpful information for homeschoolers.

Debra Bell's The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Teens is not your typical book on homeschooling. I would even venture to say that it is the definitive book on homeschooling teens. If you homeschool middle schoolers or teens, this is the one book you need to make sure you have on your shelf.

The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling Teens is organized into nine main sections, each of which is full of practical information, clear explanations, and helpful additional resources. Here's a rundown of each section.

Part 1: Making the Decision.
If you've not yet decided for sure whether you can -- or even should -- homeschool through high school, Debra Bell spells out both the advantages and challenges. And she really lays it on the line. After you're done with this section, you'll be much more confident in your decision either for or against homeschooling your teens through high school. Even if you're already planning to go the distance, don't skip this section! It might open your eyes to unforeseen challenges in your future.

Part II: Beginning with the End in Mind
Creating your curriculum plan for your teen's high school years doesn't mean just filling up four English credits, 3-4 math credits, etc. It needs to be adapted to your teen's special gifts, abilities, and future plans. How do you do that?

I found this book very helpful in planning out the 7th grade for my daughter. She has always been homeschooled and this book helped me plan her middle school experience and chart a course for high school. It was exactly what I was looking - concise information with sample transcripts, charts, and other tools for planning things ahead of time. I feel very confidant that I can continue on the homeschool journey even in the upper grades with excellent resources like this in hand. This book helps to delve into mysteries like course descriptions, resumes for teens, the place of volunteer work, credits, honors/AP credit, determining grades, and staying sane. Even as a seasoned homeschooler, the upper grades can present difficult challenges. This book is helping me plot a course.

This is a well written book, written from the Christian perspective. It's just what I was looking for as my eldest son turns 13 this year.

I have read just about every book out there on homeschooling teens, and thought there wasn't much more to learn. I was wrong! This book has tons of original content. Not just ideas, but details necessary for thorough application. It is hefty, nice large print (as an aside) and has a great chapter on "Educating Teens for the Real World". Highly recommend

I read this and felt like I was too late. It was like I had needed to start in middle school to be on track. I learned one thing.

Many years ago, as a new homeschooling mama, I stumbled upon Debra Bell's other homeschooling book. It was such a blessing to me. Now that our children are in upper middle school and heading into high school grades in the next couple of years, I was so happy to find out that Debra Bell has this book for homeschooling your teens!! Great content addressing many, many issues and great for parents of middle schoolers who plan on homeschooling throughout the high school years. A definite asset in an easy-to-read format! Great job, Debra, for sharing the wealth of your own knowledge and personal experience on this topic!!!
