E88: Home Ed Series: Unschooling and Building Family Connection with Robyn Robertson from Honey I’m Homeschooling The Kids

Hello and welcome back to the campfire! Today we have Robyn Robertson, from Honey I’m Homeschooling The Kids,  joining us.  Robyn is an unschooling mom to two kids, member of her local school board trustee, and advocate for self-directed learning. 

Growing up, Robyn lived and travelled to different countries. She knew that her early travel experience had given her a viewpoint on life unlike many others around her. As a mom, she wanted to share that with her growing family.

 After years of “dreaming” with her husband to leave the rat race and return to a life of travel and more family time, they decided that waiting “until…” would never happen and they took the plunge.

They spent the next several years traveling the world. At first, their decision to homeschool was solely for the purpose of travel. However, that quickly evolved into more.

It was the many experiences of life and travel that changed their idea of learning. Robyn started to let go and allowed her kids’ natural curiosity to shine. Their education has become an eclectic mix of many styles, but mainly unschooling.

So grab a seat by the fire as we travel to Alberta, Canada and discuss the beauty and freedom of raising self-directed learners and how it can help build family connection!
