Youth development and homeschooling a teenager #Homeschool #Homeschooling #BlackHomeschooling


The video above is an excerpt from my presentation “Success in Homeschooling Our Teens” presented June 2020 in the Liberated Minds Virtual Expo.

I talk about the ways that we conflate “outcomes” and “opportunities” and how it is helpful to determine what we want the learning outcomes to be before we plan activities that offer supposed opportunities for our children.

It is challenging sometimes for parents to homeschool teens because of the physical changes young people are experiencing with hormones and the pyschosocial development stage a teen may be encountering. I talk about that and ways we can navigate this process as homeschooling parents. I am homeschooling a teen who is in her last year of high school. I share what I have learned as a homeschooling mama, an educator and a researcher who happens to focus on homeschooling.
