Raising High School Boys

In the last of our series on transitioning to schools, today I am chatting with Alexis Karasek, a mom whose son just graduated high school.  In our other transitioning episodes, we focused on making a one-grade leap.  Since high school spans a lot of change maturity wise, today we are talking about your child from 9th-12th.
