    As the Managing Director of a study abroad program, I spend a lot of time advising students and parents on finding the best study abroad experience for them, and a lot of time working to shape the experiences my programs offer to optimize the experience for our students.

    If youíre exploring the idea of a summer travel program for your son or daughter, here are six tips to help make the experience a positive one!

    1) Assess what your Child Needs to Thrive

    There are lots of options for summer travel experiences for students. They range from free to costing tens of thousands of dollars.

    Think about what your child needs from a program. Independence? Support? Help in making friends? Experienced staff? Authenticity of activities? Value for money? Ask your child what they ...

    Recently, I was introduced to a brand new resource that I simply
    must pass along to you secular homeschooling peeps. AMAZE is a completely non-profit, non-partisan tool for making sex education less weird and lots easier for students and parents. AMAZE uses humor to try and lighten-up some of the more awkward aspects of talking about the many changes of puberty.

    Just what is AMAZE?

    AMAZE is an animated video series for the digital-savvy 10 to 14 year old that provides factual,non-judgmental, and age-appropriate information about puberty, periods, body image and sexuality in fun, bite-sized clips. If we want our children to know the facts about their bodies, ...
