Questions for Joan
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family?
How did you discover unschooling and what did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
What was the most challenging area of deschooling for you? How did you work through it?
I’d love to talk about the teen years. It’s an amazing time, isn’t it? What’s been your favourite thing about your relationships with your teens? And how did you foster that?
It’s also really fun to support teens as they pursue their interests and passions. To witness their determination and to walk with them through the challenging times. What did that look like for you guys? And how did you approach those challenging times?
What do you most appreciate about having embraced unschooling?
I know you are very passionate about sports and I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you found that weaving in to your unschooling days?
I know you’ve started a new business recently. I’d love to hear what everyone’s up to and how your days and lives weave together at the moment.
