    Your journey is very inspiring! We homeschool our B&Q 14yo in California and are planning to accompany my husband on a sabbatical to France in 2021-22. I keep hearing how rigid the French education system (even the homeschooling part) can be, so I’m inspired to hear that you are managing to unschool there. We are hoping that my son can spend the year in France deep-diving in to his interests in history, RPG (including LARP), and related subjects (obviously French language!). Any specific tips for flexible homeschooling in France? Thanks!

    Thankyou for sharing your story, very inspiring. We are also embarking on a similiar journey in our family after seeing how sucessful homeschooling during covid lockdown has been for my son. He is also dyslexic with sensory issues and hyperactivity. School had gotten very stressful for him after we too moved abroad (learning a 2nd language is very stressful at times)…and after seeing his self-esteem plummet and his anxiety increase I knew we had to try something different. Hoping it works as well for us, as you say it takes a lot of courage to leave mainstream but we know our own kids and if they arent happy and calm they cant learn.

    that was awesome!! We are also on the unschooling path, but I don’t like the term as it is confusing. A homeschool veteran mom here in South Africa that is leading many of us coined the term “uncaped” education as that really says more about what it is than “unschooling’ We are however going to opt into a structured curriculum to see how that will goes as we are aiming too high with Cambridge in 2/3 years. At least we know that if it does not work, it is not a train smash, it will just mean step back and rethink and go from there 🙂
