    Find what is not being taught at school. Find the skills that you can teach that can build their self worth and in turn will push their confidence at school/college. I can bet, schools know little on how the world will look 10 yrs down the lane and yet offer to teach and prepare a generation for times they have no clue of. In such times, it is the role of the parents who will be responsible to foresee into the future and build their kids accordingly.

    And this is precisely the reason why some home schooled kids have turned out to be million dollar entrepreneurs and change makes in their teens. They made a choice to do what it takes to shape their young into great beings.
