How does a homeschooling Mum move on from homeschooling? I wonder does one at all? I’m in the position where both my children are in the workforce and only one lives at home now. I grieve the loss of this close relationship with my children but also celebrate their moving on into a new realm of their lives. They are both still learning and I can still have a part in that albeit a very small one for Doug who isn’t living at home any more. Jess is navigating the full time work environment and all the challenges that brings and doesn’t mind some input from Mum from time to time.
However back to me. Don’t get me wrong I’m not sitting at home moping (although I’ve done that). I’m moving on with my life now – studying and preparing to do some teaching in the future as well as doing some voluntary work but I just read Beverley Paine’s homeschooling newsletter and that got me thinking about what I miss from homeschooling and wondering how does one move on?
So I’m posing the question and would really like your feedback!!
