Help! I have an average homeschool high schooler! It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking your teen must be an academic superstar.

Here’s the truth: Most teens are average! That’s what average means.

But God made each teen in His image and has not goofed up yet. While some teens may be *average* academically, all teens are special in God’s eyes. He has gifted each with an interest, ability or personality that will be a blessing for his kingdom. It is our job as homeschooling parents to help our teens explore and discover and appreciate who God made them to be.

Here’s a freebie with personal discovery/free personality test links from Vicki Tillman Coaching.
