Today is the official publication date of the third edition of Life Prep for Homeschooled Teenagers!
I originally wrote this curriculum for my eldest daughter and used it for her and her brother when they were doing homeschool high school. It was first published in 2003. We added to it and used that second edition (2006) for our youngest daughter when she was a homeschooled teen.
Homeschooling parents continued to buy the curriculum all these years, but over time I started thinking about how it needed to be updated. Two years ago, I began that work, but a serious illness with hospitalization interrupted my efforts. Just about the time I began regaining my strength, my husband was hospitalized with the same illness. So we had some hurdles, but thank God we’re doing better and we were able to finish the third edition of Life Prep just in time for the June 1 publication date.
It’s a lot bigger now! There are six new projects:
- Debt Penalty Project
- Debt Calculator Project
- Student Loan Project
- Checking Account Project
- Debit Card Project
- Bank Safety Project
Other features of this updated and expanded edition include:
- The new “Work or College?” section helps you determine if your teenager is “college material.” Given the tremendous increase in college costs over the past 14 years, you can’t afford to miss that section. Another new feature of that section shows you and your teen how to research potential careers to determine which ones are financially viable.
- I’ve added two terrific books to the Reading List: The Treasure Principle and George Muller: Man of Faith and Miracles.
- The Financial Freedom project has been updated to reflect current prices, and the Health Insurance Project has been updated with regards to the Affordable Care Act.
- The curriculum gained 34 pages and now has color illustrations.
