I am very fortunate that my son goes to work with me. We do our discussions in the car and at home. I give him his list [I use the free version of Home School Tracker] He's in 9th grade and I hope to transition him to Community College [that's his level academically] in 2-3 years. Our state also has a "Virtual High School" which he may do some classes with--esp science.

Having tried it I don't recommend leaving kids of ANY age home while you go to work. If you've got an elderly relative who can be in the home--fine. Otherwise, you're setting yourself up for problems. Still, my daughter was in homeschool last year [7th grade] and chose to stay home some days, go to Grandma's some days and come with me some days.

Bottom line for most of us who are single homeschoolers is you have to really juggle! The older the kid the better the chance of working at a real job though. It took me YEARS to find this job. It can also be a hassle to get a work permit for a teen other than normal "after school hours"--just another thought.
