  1. As a recently “retired” or “unemployed” homeschool parent, I have felt somewhat lost. Then I watched a lecture in which Andrew Kern talked about Classical Christian Education in terms of “perceiving and receiving” truth as well as “beholding” and “becoming.” That is what led me to ClassicalU and this beautiful introductory course by Dr. Perrin. It occurred to me that as I continue doing what I love (studying, wondering, sharing, becoming), I might also become a potential guide through this empty-nest transition for younger homeschooling moms in my established homeschooling community. I’m already a leader amongst the families, so it would be natural. Since there is no time limit on the blessings of “beholding” and “becoming,” I’m looking to the classics in a new season of life. I wonder if there might be a sub-group of us at ClassicalU who have “lost” our traditional students. Is anyone else in my situation? Are any of you reaching out to fellow adults and fellow-learners as students in this way?
  2. Many homeschoolers report what a joy it is to be the one to teach their children to read. Has that been your experience? Please share–and share how you have overcome a challenge or two.
  3. Carrie Finch was a former public school teacher–but homeschooling parents come from every kind of background. What is your background and how do you see it serving and helping you as a homeschooling parent? In what ways might your background be a hindrance as well?
  4. Carrie Finch shares how as a busy homeschooling parent she seeks to take care of herself. How do you do that?
  5. Yes, homeschooling is worth it–but what are the hardships we must be prepared to face?
  6. You may have heard what Carrie Finch says about her experience, but what do you find the best part (or parts) of homeschooling?
  7. You may have heard Carrie Finch describe why she decided to homeschool. What led you to choose homeschooling for your children?
