In 2012, I asked my husband to start following my new Facebook page so I could have a follower. You need one to get to two, and you need two to get to three, and if you have a dozen you’ll be taken more seriously, and if you’re taken more seriously you can help more people. It blew my mind when 100 parents were following HS4CC on Facebook, but it confirmed for me something I knew intuitively when I started: your people will find you- don’t try and convince someone to be in your audience.
Since day 1, I’ve never allowed advertising and I’ve never chased the “likes” because it’s not important to me that MANY people like or approve or support Homeschooling for College Credit. What’s always been the most important to me is that the people who ARE here and who WANT support always get my full attention – and that’s a different focus than promoting and growing a brand.
Still, I am exceptionally encouraged to share with you that TODAY we hit 25,000 followers on Facebook. I’m so honored. Thank you!

HS4CC parent from Ohio asks “We are trying to plan her foreign language, and she has 4 languages she is interested in, so I am trying to figure out if there is a reason for her to NOT do one language each year and just have a broad familiarity with four languages rather than concentrate on one language.”Continue reading “Parent Question: Can my daughter study 4 different languages or just 1?”

If you’re a homeschool family, I already know you’re brave. I also know that you’ve made a great sacrifice to line your kids up with good education and a bright future. You already have the foundation to handle this next season or stage with ease; now you have to find your confidence for this phase.
Much of the high school to college process is designed to intimidate you into compliance, so by the time you’ve read hundreds of web pages, applied to dozens of colleges, are willing to mortgage your home and tap your 401(k), you’re so beaten down that you’ll gladly send your child to any college that will take them. Instead of surrendering your authority to the experts, I hope instead you’ll be inspired to take on the role of the expert in your homeschool.
Since founding the Homeschooling for College Credit community on Facebook, I’ve met thousands of homeschool families. Almost every parent feared the things I feared and wanted the things I wanted. We all wanted to graduate our children from homeschool, to help them earn a legitimate college degree or trade certificate, to get them on track for a self-supporting career, and to not go bankrupt in the process. If those are your family’s goals, they align with mine too, and you should find this book a tremendous resource for you.

Is it something to be concerned about?”Continue reading “Parent Question: A college professor told me something about financial aid and my teen’s college credit.”
