The Homeschool Highschool Podcast Episode 9: Teens and Failure
What will happen if your teen bombs the SATs, totally screws up his research paper, or makes a stupid decision? When does a good parent rescue her teens? If he blows something, does it mean you’re a bad homeschool mom?
You’ll get so much encouragement from Sabrina, Vicki and Kym as they discuss some of their families’ failures and how to overcome them… They even discuss how to learn from them and make those failures great stories for years to come!
