Every state may be different. Check your state's homeschooling laws. In my state, North Carolina, you can homeschool your child of any age, as long as you finished high school yourself. As another answer said, some states may throw up legal roadblocks. That's a bad plan, since research shows that the states with less oversight of homeschoolers have better outcomes. Practically, almost anyone is qualified. The parents are probably the ideal persons to do it, since they know their kid and his needs. A teen is able to work on his own to some extent, and the parent can learn alongside if the kid needs to learn something the parent doesn't already know. If your teen is moving too far beyond you, that _great_ news. Have him teach you! He'll learn more than if you were teaching him. Teaching requires that you get it straight! I know that parents and their children don't always have the secure relationship that makes that possible, particualrly if the child has spent years in the public warehouse schools. If your teen needs help learning that you just can't provide, or if you just can't have him teaching you, look into sending him to the local college or university. Our local university warmly welcomes young homeschoolers, as long as they show a bit of maturity and are willing to work.
