FINDING THE BEST HOMESCHOOLING FOR OUR TRAVEL LIFESTYLE
You Know Best
I’m not going to back up our thought processes and decisions with a lot of stats and case studies for you. I’m not saying they aren’t helpful, but you can find a bunch of stats and reports to validate any opinion you have. What I want to give you more are insights and experiences.
How our homeschooling approach has evolved
We started as nervous homeschoolers in 2013, when Kalyra (6 ) was in her third term of Kindergarten and I was not long out of the classroom. She was reading by this stage and doing quite well. I was unsure about homeschooling so we enrolled her in distance education.
Why homeschooling needed to change
An unschooling approach worked ok while on the road as every day was filled with life learning and travel experiences. Every moment presented an opportunity for evolutionary growth.
Discipline and Structure
While the flexibility and freedom we had because of our travels was wonderful and offered many great benefits for open mindedness, curiosities, adventures and explorations, we still felt that there was a certain amount of disciple and structure missing.
What about socialization?
We were on the fence as to whether traditional school was the best solution for socialization. I’m pretty sure they would form friendships, and find awesome people to hang out with. But, we were very concerned with the negative social effects of school.
