Izaak Sibley joins me this week to share his experience as an unschooling dad. He shares about his own school education, how he saw his love of learning disappear over time, and how unschooling with Q has reignited it. We talk about trusting human curiosity and how he has seen Q’s learning naturally lead in such interesting directions. Izaak and his partner Holly have been creative with their living and working situations in order to meet the needs of everyone in the family, and he shares some insights into how they’ve made things work.
Izaak’s excitement about learning and unschooling shines through in our conversation!
