Questions for Robyn
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family?
When your kids were young, you and your husband decided to embrace travel. How did that come about?
My understanding is that you guys began homeschooling while travelling because it made sense. How did you eventually discover unschooling and what did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
When we were emailing before the call, you described unschooling as being more about the flow of your family. I loved that and would like to dive into that idea. Let’s start with the challenge of defining unschooling in the first place. In unschooling circles it’s pretty common to hear that unschooling looks different for different families. And on one hand, the freedom of that is great! But on the other, it doesn’t help much if you’re newer to the idea of unschooling and trying to figure out what it does look like. What did that part of the journey look like for you?
Something that I eventually came to find fascinating about unschooling is how the flow of our days changes over time. Like the flow of a river changes over time. Has that been your experience?
What’s your favourite thing about the flow of your unschooling days right now?
You host the podcast, ‘Honey! I’m Homeschooling the Kids.’ I’d love to hear the story behind that project!
