Kelli and Rhanna Lincoln, unschooling mom and daughter, join me this week on the podcast. I had so much fun chatting with them and hearing about their unschooling lives—from both their perspectives. We talk about their journey to unschooling, living and learning with four kids (or three siblings!), their family’s RV travels, their latest business adventure and lots more!
Questions for Kelli & Rhanna
Can you guys introduce yourselves and share a bit about you and your family?
Kelli, how did you discover unschooling and what did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
Rhanna, at some point you realized other kids were going to school and that your family was doing things differently. The conventional messages about needing school to learn are so pervasive. Was there a time when you were worried about that? How did you work through that?
With four children—or three siblings!—it can sometimes take time to figure out and weave everyone’s needs into our days. I’d love to hear what that process has generally looked like, from each of your perspectives.
I’ve heard you guys have had some RV adventures! How did that come about and do you have a story or two to share?
I’d love to hear some stories about how learning has unfolded in your unschooling lives. It looks different than school-based learning, doesn’t it? Though it doesn’t make it any less valuable.
I’d love to hear the story behind Miss Teaberry’s Baked Goods. I saw you just celebrated your first anniversary, congratulations! How has that evolved, and how does your working relationship flow?
