My guest this week is Kelly Callahan, unschooling mom of two. Kelly is now four years into her unschooling journey, and I was excited to explore how unschooling has been weaving ever more deeply into their lives. We chat about how they began unschooling, her deschooling challenges, the connections she’s seen between unschooling and her work as a homeopathic doctor, maintaining family connections with her husband when he travels for work, and lots more.
Quote of the Week
“The things that challenge me are never the unschooling. It’s really because I’m super attached to something—being someway or some idea I had about it.” ~ Kelly Callahan
Questions for Kelly
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family?
How did you discover unschooling and how did your family’s choice to move to unschooling come about?
What did you find to be one of the bigger challenges as you were deschooling?
Can you share a bit about your children’s interests and how they weave into your lives?
You’ve discovered some interesting connections between your work as a homeopathic doctor and unschooling. I know as I continue to learn on my writing journey, I make connections and gain insights that feed into my unschooling journey, and vice versa. It seems that as I go deeper into one, it takes me deeper into the other. Have you found that as well?
I understand that your husband has been traveling a lot with work. Can you share your experience with keeping him in the loop and maintaining connections while he’s away?
You’ve been unschooling for four years now. At this point in your journey, do you find that unschooling principles weave their way into all aspects of your lives?
