This week, I have a lovely conversation with Jessica Kane. Jessica and her husband live in Ireland, and have three children. Her oldest attended school through high school, her middle son left school in grade 4, and her youngest son has never been to school. This gives her such a unique perspective to share! We also dive into her deschooling journey and challenges, what has surprised her most so far, and lots more.
Questions for Jessica
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family? What is everyone into right now?
How did you discover unschooling and what did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
What has been one of the more challenging aspects of deschooling so far? And can you share a bit about your journey through it?
What has surprised you most about your journey so far?
There are pretty big age gaps between your three children, which puts you in distinctly different seasons with each of them, all at the same time. I’d love to hear more about that!
What is your favourite thing about the flow of your unschooling days right now?
