“Sure, it’s nice to do while you’re young…”
We hear this all of the time. And while we were quite young when we began our travels in 2008, well, we’ve been following the calling of the road for quite some time. When we began, our oldest son was already 8. Since then, his 2 younger brothers were born on the road, and they’re all of school age by now.
So, what to do? Well, teach them as you go, of course! Anyone can be a teacher, it just takes patience, time and a little creativity. Here are our guides to doing just that.
A thorough rundown of road schooling from a family of six who’ve done it for years and years now, from pre-school aged children through high schoolers. Resources, testimony and advice.
