From Preschool to Adulthood - Erin Cox on the Schoolhouse Rocked Podcast

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Erin is a joy-chasing homeschool mama to 4 babies, ages young adult down to elementary. She married her grade-school sweetheart over 20 years ago, and lives to love him well. Erin writes about homeschooling, taking hard moments captive for Christ, and loving her family well at Life, Abundantly. She is the author of multiple early-years Charlotte Mason and Classically-inspired programs at The Gentle + Classical Press and is the Founding Editor in Chief of On Mission, a quarterly culture-focused geography magazine.

In this interview you will learn:

  • What makes the preschool years so important developmentally (not just physically but emotionally and spiritually).
  • If “preschool” really necessary… shouldn’t we just let them play?
  • What we should be focused on in the preschool years, academically.
  • The three primary “focuses” in the preschool years? (How to relate to God, to self, and to others)
  • What preschool has to do with redeeming our broader culture?
  • What our responsibility as Christian homeschoolers is to the greater popular culture. Should we hunker down and just keep our kids safe?
  • The difference between “real” culture as opposed to popular culture)
