Nadia Joshua joins me this week to talk about her family’s move to unschooling and her personal deschooling journey. It was delightful to learn more about her family and how they navigated moving to one income, explored the need to go and do, learned to honour both her daughters and their individual personalities, and lots more!
Questions for Nadia
Can you share with us a bit about you and your family? What is everyone into right now?
When we connected, you mentioned that when school wasn’t working well for your eldest, you left your job and you and your husband changed your lifestyle so you could afford to live off one income. Can you share a bit more of that story?
From there, how did you discover unschooling and what did your family’s move to unschooling look like?
I love seeing different learning styles and personalities play out in online unschooling groups. Some people come in asking lots of questions, others prefer to quietly read, read, read—and, of course, there are all points in between. You’re a question-asker, right? I’d love to hear about your experience!
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 is your favourite thing about the flow of your unschooling days right now?
