Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers, Third Edition: A Parent-Friendly Curriculum for Teaching Teens about Credit Cards, Auto and Health Insurance, Ma (Paperback)
Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers is a parent-friendly curriculum for teaching your teens how to live as morally and financially responsible adults. The book includes instructions for customizing the curriculum for all teens, whether they're work-bound or college-bound.
This third edition is completely updated and expanded, and includes six new projects to prepare teens for a life of managing their money with a goal of financial freedom. A new section, "Work or College?" helps you determine if your teenager is "college material," and explains how to help your teen find the careers that have the best prospects in the new economy.
Step-by-step projects (requiring minimal preparation by parents) teach your teens about debit and credit cards, health insurance, taxes, debt (including student loans), budgeting and many other subjects they'll face once they're on their own. Reading and writing assignments review the principles your teens need to get along with family, friends and coworkers, and to live their values in their personal and work lives. This book is a compilation of all the practical things you wish you'd been taught in high school. Now you can make sure your teens are ready for life "out of the nest."
