Unschooling Teens with Robyn Robertson

This is episode 72 and today I’m here with Robyn Robertson talking about unschooling teens.

Guest

Robyn Robertson is an unschooling mom to 2 kids, podcast host, business owner and public school board trustee.

Robyn, her husband and their 2 kids started their worldschooling journey in 2012. During this time, Robyn watched curiosity and excitement for life grow in her family. 2 things stood out to her — she noticed that less time in school did not equal less learning. In fact, learning seemed to be more meaningful outside of school. She also saw their family’s bond strengthen.  

Her experiences traveling while home-educating had Robyn questioning her past beliefs around parenting, how we learn, and the education system. It also highlighted the need for community. This led Robyn to launch her podcast Honey! I’m Homeschooling the Kids, which is a platform to share ideas, stories and information about the joys and challenges of home education and self directed learning. The podcast also serves as a place to bring together a collective voice for change in the broader education system. 

Today, Robyn advocates politically for home education and self-directed learning. With her experience and Trustee position she bridges the gaps between the homeschool community and local educators.

She combines that experience, knowledge and curiosity in her mentoring, working with families to help them envision and create their own unique learning paths. 

You can find her through her website, podcast, in her Community~Honey I’m Homeschooling on the Clubhouse app or on Facebook and Instagram @Honey! I’m Homeschooling The Kids.
