High School Helps...
Encouraging Them to
Flap Their Wings Effectively!
Looking for high school helps to make homeschooling this age group a possibility? You've come to the right place!
First consider this...
Everyone loves the grace and majesty of an eagle soaring effortlessly through the skies. But did you know, that before he ever soars, he does a lot of flapping?
That's right... the eaglet in the nest flaps his wings over and over again to strengthen the chest muscles that power those magnificent wings. His parents can't do that for him... He must do it on his own, one flap at a time.
And did you know... that the parent eagles watch him carefully - so that if the young one isn't quite ready and begins to fall, one of them will swoop under and catch him on his back and carry him up to the safety of the nest so that he can flap some more? They will do this as many times as it takes the young eagle to be able to fly on his own.
I'll bet you can see all the comparisons here between eagles and homeschooling parents right away so I won't belabor them... :)
This section of The Homeschool Companion is divided into areas that I hope will give you the information and resources you will need to teach your young eagle to fly.
Let’s start by assuming your child wants or at least agrees to be home for high school…You will need to come to that understanding before you can take this journey because it is a journey you will need to make together. You will need each other for this to work!
