Veteran Homeschooling mom Barbara Frank has designed this fantastic curriculum to help you equip your teens with the essential life skills they’ll need to have for their eventual independent life in the big world. For me it’s a scary thought – how are my little boys ever going to survive out there without me? If I’m a good mom (I like to think I am!) then I had better make sure even if I’m not ready to let them go, I pretend like I am and teach them what they need to know to be successful, financially secure, principled, Godly adults. This book is just what I need to get me going.
If your children plan to go to college, enlist in the military, or get right into the working world, they’ll need to make their own decisions in regards to car buying, credit cards, health insurance, taxes, budgeting, utilities, food expenses, mortgages, as well as handling interpersonal relationships, dating and values – this book addresses all of those important topics and more through 2 parts – the reading list and project list. Your student will read some great books (20 titles to choose from) that support traditional values and offer smart insight and sensible advice. Discussion and suggested follow-up with an essay or other book report will help maximize the reading experience. The projects (11 total) are hands on, requiring the student to do research, phone calls, and realistic assignments.
Life Prep covers a multitude of practical and essential skills. Whether your teen has a few years left at home, or is on the verge of graduation, you will find this curriculum a great help in preparing your child for life. Highly recommended!
