I wanted to know:
- Why her mother chose to homeschool when it wasn’t as popular as it is today.
- How Renée reacted to beginning homeschooling as a high school student
- How she met her husband and decided to homeschool their own children
- If her parents shared their desire that she would homeschool too
- If she had anxiety about what homeschooling would mean for her career
- If her mother gave her advice on curriculum
- If she feels extra pressure because she’s a next generation homeschooler
- If she has homeschooled friends who’ve chosen not to homeschool themselves
- If she hopes her own children will homeschool and how she encourages that
