The Beck family of five—Angie, Darren, Josh, Rylie, and Ellie—are back to continue our conversation about their unschooling journey. We had so much fun chatting and sharing stories that our conversation flowed for about two hours, so I split it across two episodes. Check out part one here!
This week, we talk about each of the children’s unique paths through childhood to their current interests and activities. As Ellie mentions, their interests and personalities are so different, and it’s fun to see how the family was able to meet their needs and support each child’s path by working together as a team. We also discuss some of the challenges they all faced over the years and some of the surprises they encountered along the way. Their reflections are so fascinating and inspiring!
Questions for the Beck family
Each of the kids has chosen a very different path. I’d love to hear more about how that has unfolded, from everyone’s perspective!
Can you share a story or two about challenges you guys have worked through over the years? It’s such a different process when everyone’s working together, isn’t it?
Looking back now, what has surprised you most about having embraced unschooling?
