HSHSP Ep 99: Being Real and Flexible When Your Teens Become Adults

What is a realistic look at life after homeschool graduation?

Life for this generation’s graduates looks different when we compare to our lives when we moms graduated!

  • Jobs are different
  • Life expenses are different
  • Expectations are different

Here is an important tip for you and your homeschool graduates to remember: Flexibility!

Also remember: We are NOT in charge of the outcomes. God is in charge of the outcomes. As parents, we must often *let go and let God*.

Sabrina, Vicki and Kym discuss some of the reality of life after graduation:

Sometimes, adult children need to live at home for a while because student loans and other expenses prevent them from living on their own. (As one of our homeschool graduates reminded us, this was common several generations ago.)

  • When our graduates stay at home for a while, how do they move into roommate status (instead of us parents continuing to “baby” them)?

Sometimes, our adult children need to live with multiple roommates to make ends meet. How do they adjust to that lifestyle?

Remember: Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation.” Hard times do not equal failure!

Beware of the idea that our homeschool graduates should continue to be “happy, shiny homeschoolers”.

Remember: Life is NOT ever going to be perfect!

Remember: While we are not in charge of the outcome, we are in charge of prayer. Prayer is always necessary no matter HOW old our homeschool graduates are. AND you are where you are because that’s where you are…let God handle it.

These are a few of the thoughts that we share this episode. Listen in! And in the meantime, check out the good advice in these posts:
