  1. I would like to some other homeschool blogger moms interviewed. Some with businesses and some without. I also would like to see some parenting coaches interviewed with how to deal with some of the issues we have as parents.

  2. I’d like to hear about people who have homeschooled all the way through graduation and what learning methods they implemented early on that they felt were an extremely good foundation. And what methods/curriculums they felt were detrimental.

    1. More good ideas. You might find some information about this topic if you search Approaches to Homeschooling here on this site.

  3. I like Sherri’s question and to add on to that, what do you say to your husband who is still not agreeing to saying he feels that they need to be in school a few years to build a foundation.

  4. I would like more information on how to balance the day, covering the needed material, without it taking over the entire day. Also, ways to incorporate more fun into the learning.

    1. This is so important for homeschool moms – balancing the day & your family. I’ll definitely address it & possibly have a workshop in February about that topic

      1. I definitely need help with getting all of our material covered without it taking over our entire day. This also means that some of the (what I consider fun subjects) like art gets put to the side. How can I balance all of our subjects, keep up with the housework, and still find time for the more creative subjects? (I’ve been homeschooling my boys for 3 1/2 years & I’m still struggling with this!)

  5. I love how you’re covering instilling character, leadership, and a biblical worldview. SO important! Other things I personally could use help with: balancing school & home; and teaching proper attitude/respect.

    1. Time management – or balancing life is another topic of importance. I’m thinking about covering it in Feb or March.

  6. I would love to see information about tailoring a high school program to a non-college career path. My 17-year-old son is enrolled in an auto technologies class at our local career center and is working 25 hours a week at a garage fixing cars. This is what he wants to do with his life (right now…). We are finding it difficult to navigate what is really important to require for graduation, and what should be let go. I am more lenient in this than my husband, who still thinks the traditional path of classes should be for all kids. How do we navigate both our relationship and our expectations for our son in this so we don’t stress him out by requiring too much that he will never use but not fail him by not requiring enough to merit graduation either?

    I would love to hear from other homeschool moms who have graduated their children into blue collar careers and how they navigated the high school years.

    1. Thanks for your honesty. So many parents get caught up in pushing their kids to college, but that’s not always God’s will. I was talking to my daughter yesterday (she’s 25) about some advice for young people. It was interesting because she made the comment … whatever you pursue (college or not), have a reason for it. That’s what I’ve been telling them for awhile. Think through where you’re headed and have a reason (preferably God’s reason) for your decision.

      I’ll talk a bit about this on Tuesday, but we might have a special workshop about teaching life skills and pursuing other options than college.

  7. I would love advice/tips on teaching a resistant schooler (hates school with “reading and quizzes” ,also has Aspergers &ODD, equals a lot of resistance. But he is smart, & can read well.) Also interviews with divorced/single moms of resistant learners. Tips on what has helped them, without help from a spouse to get thru to & engage the heart of their child. Also how to get affirmation from other people in situations where you don’t/can’t get it from a spouse or children.

    1. There are so many ways to educate our kids…even ones outside of typical academics. I hope to share a few on Tuesday, but we may have a facebook party about this topic.

  8. I’d like information on restoring order and structure when things have gotten out of control and the kids don’t want to be still and focus on school.

  9. I would love to hear more about homeschooling with multiple ages- I struggle with my boys competing for my attention!! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win!!

  10. Hi kerry,
    That workshop sounds great, I just can’t make it. Is there any way I can access this after it is finished?
    From a mom who desperately needs encouragement for the new year!
    God bless,

    1. We plan to record the workshop and will be sending the recording to everyone who registers. So, go ahead & register so you get all the details on the recording.

    1. Good topic. I have some information about this in our Approaches to Christian Homeschooling workshops and blog posts. You might search there. I’ll talk just a little bit about this on Tuesday.

  11. I have to agree with a lot of the previous comments. I struggle with a reluctant learner as well. All topics on boys are much appreciated.

  12. Does anyone have experience with achieving a second language proficiency? trying to teach my children my first language, but always end up slipping back into English.

  13. handling the grandparents, friends, and total stranger who think just because your kids can’t rattle off factoids of random trivia about obscure topics or compute math figures like a computer that they aren’t learning anything. how do you deal with people who ,especially when your kids were in school, were satisfied with the answer of nothing and now seem to want a mini documentary since your kids are homeschooled.

    and how do you deal with multiple age ranges. i have a 14 yr old, a 13 yr old, an 11 yr old, a 6 yr old, and a 3 yr old.

  14. I would love more how to and methods that have worked for you and others to instill respect and obedience in your kids and overall good character. Is there any curriculum or certain directions you’d be willing to point us for more concrete ideas to try? Our kids are 4, 2 1/2 yr old twins and 14mo and we’re expecting our 5th in December. We seem to be struggling with respecting when mom/dad want things done. And they listen much worse to me when their dad is home for some reason, which has been so emotionally draining for me.

  15. I’m feeling frustrated with my kids and their lack of respect for the house and other family members. I would like advise on how to get my kids to do their chores and respect other peoples property. I have 4 tweens. I feel like I am losing control of the situation. I Ferrell like a failure.

      1. Trina,
        I am so sorry you feel that way. I know you are not a failure. Homeschooling can be tough. I hope you can join us for the workshop tomorrow.
        Do you have local homeschool friends? Ones you can talk to on a regular basis.
        Is there something I can help you with or help point you in the right direction?
        God says “I will never leave you nor forsake you”. He is there with you.
