This class is not about high school transcripts, SAT scores, or college applications. This class explores the importance of being “street smart” about the world in which we live, avoiding naivety while maintaining purity and positivity. We will explore conversations to have before your children leave home, including: difficult-family situations, sex education, wisdom in dating and choosing a spouse, kindness to others with different standards, how to set personal boundaries, and contradicting worldviews. These sensitive topics with real-life scenarios will be examined, and some tips for when and how to introduce these subjects will be proposed. The bubble of homeschool is beautiful; let’s pop it gently.
Stephanie Harris teaches at C7 Ranch Academy in southeastern Idaho. Student enrollment: eight. Together with her husband, CJ, they raise their children on the values of classical/leadership education, physical work, family activities, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Their school style is eclectic, and is carefully fit to their unique family dynamics and goals. Besides leading her family’s mornings of classical (and sometimes brain candy) readings, math lessons, and often tear-stained writing activities, she also serves as the Scholar Principal for the Pocatello Chapter of Freedom Scholars for American homeschool co-op. She is an experienced real estate investor, and a family-focused life coach. Her hobbies include as much reading as possible, quilting while listening to podcasts, enduring wrestling tournaments, and home renovation (which is never done).
