What Do Homeschooling Parents Do

When the Nest Is Empty?


homeschoolingOver the years I’ve done my best to stay in touch with the many homeschooling moms and dads I’ve have the privilege to meet throughout the years of traveling to homeschooling conferences and working with many of them. I thought it would be fun to go through my Facebook information and share with you some of what I know about what these homeschooling parents are doing now that they have “empty nests.” Since this was a last minute check and I haven’t asked permission of any of them, I won’t include any potentially identifying information about them (which is a shame, because so many are doing really cool things I’d like to shout about if I was a lot more organized these days!).

Homeschooling Prepares Parents for the Future

What do homeschooling parents do when the nest is empty? They use the education they received while learning with their children and go out and do all of the things that please their hearts and souls, possibly activities that were put on hold while their children were front and center!

If you’re currently homeschooling and sometimes get caught up in the day-to-day stuff, hang on to this post for inspiration. If you’re thinking about homeschooling but are afraid you won’t be able to fulfill your dreams, well, the kids grow up in the blink of an eye. And after you’ve received your homeschooled education, you’ll be well prepared to pursue whatever floats your boat, too!

FRIENDS – If you recognize yourself and would like to send me permission to do so, send me your business link and I’ll edit this post to include it!
