Homeschool Highschool Podcast Ep 133: Got the Wrong Curriculum?

Sabrina, Vicki and Kym tackle the uncomfortable topic: What to do when you bought the WRONG curriculum for your teens?

What if you invested in a curriculum that YOU hate? or your homeschool high schoolers hate?

There are a few options, and they are good. Here’s how to handle it when the curriculum is wrong for your teens.

  • Remember: There’s not ONE right way to homeschool high school?
  • Remember: It’s okay to have options, so forsake your perfectionistic ideas about curriculum and your choices.
  • Remember: Some curriculum providers have a money-back guarantee (, for one)
  • Remember: Are you having a curriculum issue or an attitude issue. (Teens have to learn that they CAN do things they don’t want to do…moms, too! Sometimes teens have never truly hit this issue before. They had never truly hated a school subject before, but high school has required credits, even if teens DON’T like those credits.)
  • Remember: Ask yourself, is this ONE subject that your teen doesn’t like or is it ALL subjects? If it is all subjects, it may be other issues besides the specific curriculum? Ask yourself: Is this character, anxiety, health, self-care, wrong publisher?
  • Remember: Model flexibility, adaptability, willingness to change, humility for your teens.

Remember: Ask yourself if you have the wrong curriculum, for instance: a college-prep text for a non-college-bound teen? Why waste time, energy and self-image on unnecessary rigor in a textbook. That’s why 7Sisters curriculum is easily adaptable for college bound teens’ needs AND non-college-bound teens’ needs.

Here are concrete ideas:
