I'd like to make an inquiry regarding the GED-(General Educational Development) The American High School Equivalence Test.
I'd like to take the test but when looking around I have been given the option of a testing center named 'Prometric' which in my opinion is rather on the expensive side to take these tests. (375.00 dollars)
I want to ask all you mothers who are home schooling, where do your kids take these type of tests?? or if You have any friends or any knowledge of an alternative testing center. (eg: Military Base which Im looking into right now)
It would be of monstrous help!
Thanks for reading!

Help from a "coach".

This is not therapy. It is problem solving based on the idea that the solution is within you. Sounds like a very proactive approach. Being a mother and taking care of a family is a career, these days often in addition to a workplace career. A good coach can help mothers find solutions.
