Academics Aren’t Enough

The Homescholar comes out with new Kindle book to helps parents find the perfect balance between academics and life skills.

Seattle, WA, August 30, 2013 --( Homeschooling is more than just an educational movement; it’s a completely different approach to raising children, one that incorporates academics into their broader life and education. To focus solely on academics—especially during the high school years—is to miss the boat. Popular author Lee Binz understands this, and that’s why she’s written “Beyond Academics: Preparation for College and for Life.” Available on Amazon for just $2.99, “Beyond Academics” helps parents find the perfect balance between academics and life skills.

“Beyond Academics” is part of Binz’s Coffee Break Books series, written especially for parents who want detailed homeschool information in a short book. It outlines three overlapping areas that are important for success in both college and life: college prep activities, skills for independent learning, and health and safety issues that will prepare kids for a happy and healthy adulthood. Homeschool parents have found “Beyond Academics” to be a great resource. “Lee is practical, creative, and not intimidating in her advice. Her suggestions are inspirational … Even the most disorganized person like me can come away from her books with loads of tips that I actually incorporate into our busy life. Highly recommended!” said C. Raggy. “Peace of mind is what I experienced while I read this short e-book!” reported S. Paulus.
