Natasha Allan-Zaky joins me this week for a wonderful unschooling conversation! We talk about her family’s move to unschooling, the challenge of embracing fun, learning piano, her biggest a-ha moment so far on the journey, and lots more.
Questions for Natasha
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family?
What did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
I love hearing what unschooling kids are getting up to. What are your kids interested in right now and how are you helping them explore it?
I think one of the deschooling challenges many of us face is the shift to embracing fun. And I don’t mean just for the kids—I mean for us too. For so long we’ve absorbed the message that adults and adult things are serious, while fun is for kids. It’s an important shift though, isn’t it? Can you share your experience around embracing fun?
I saw a video you posted on your Facebook page about a month ago about your daughter figuring out how to play a song she loves on the piano. I’d love to hear the story of how her piano journey has unfolded so far.
What has been your biggest a-ha moment so far on your unschooling journey?
Can you share the story behind your choice to name your blog, Follow the Joy? What does that phrase mean to you?
