Homeschool Enrichment Magazine - March/April 2017

Home School Enrichment Magazine - January/February 2017 – Posted 4/29/17

Welcome to 2017 - and to the 15th year of Home School Enrichment Magazine!

This is our college issue. We're looking at the whole topic, including worldview, getting high school curriculum college-ready, pros and cons of a non-traditional college path, and even whether or not homeschoolers should go to college at all! (Spoiler: It's up to you and your student - but there are sure some things to consider!)

Of course, not everything is college-related. Pretty much every parent out there will love the genius idea in Gail Heaton's Hey, Mom! I'm Bored! Definitely better than a chore list! And who couldn't use some help managing the endless shelves and stacks of books we all seem to pile up? Also, don't miss Maribeth Spangenberg's thoughts on A Mother's Most Essential Tool - thought-provoking and inspiring!

All that is just a taste. Please dive in and see for yourself! Have fun!
