We've been doing HS for years and have really not had any big problems. Now, all of a sudden, I've realized my oldest is going to be outgrowing HS soon. She's turning 16 soon. Her HS curriculum allows us to work at her pace, which is very fast - she's a smart kid. We've always done reading over the summer. Her HS program also has a college-credit option, whihc is great and will save a fortune, I have a 16 year old who is going to finish her second year of college work in December. Ouch! Now what?
We have been thinking a lot about the social rules we expect for our kids. When they were younger, we were comfortable with, "well, we have the HS support group and lots of cousins and church". Fine. But now? we really are against her dating. If we send her away to college, well, dorms are basically sinkholes of depravity. She can do a few more credits online, but sooner or later, she will need to go outside the home to finish college if she continues to pursue the interests she has.

what do you all do to transition your HS kids to the adult world? Do you expect them to live at home until they marry? Do you change the rules at home once they turn 18? I'm just looking for input. This one has me a little overwhelmed.
