Heyyyy, welcome to the Life Without School podcast by Stark Raving Dad! Here to help you and your children live the life *you* want to, not just the one you’re told you should.

    Every Child Has A Story To Tell

    Every Child Has A Story To Tell

    Asking our children to all learn the same things, at the same times, in the same groups, in the same spaces, with only the same ages…
    …is effectively asking them to become the same as everyone else.
    It’s asking them to think less about their true selves, and more about what the most accepted version of it might be. It’s asking them to see their uniqueness as a bad thing, and fitting in as good. No, more than that – critical.
    And to me, this fundamentally undermines what being a human being is all about.
    See, I believe every child has their own story. And in this episode of the Life Without School Podcast, I want to make a plea to let more of them tell it.

    Why Trusting Your Child Will Change Their Life

    Why Trusting Your Child Will Change Their Life

    In this episode we're looking at a philosophy that underpins how Kate and I approach life with our kids, their education, and our relationships with them. It's very different to the way formal education is approached, and is based on the power of trust. We’ll talk about the process of letting go of that complete control over a child’s education that is so engrained in us. About why it’s so important, how we might navigate it all, and what the results can look like.
    About how putting trust in our children has changed our lives. And, how I believe it can change yours, too.

    Monthly Q&A: On Growing Resilience / On Finding Time For Yourself / On Reluctant Dads

    Monthly Q&A: On Growing Resilience / On Finding Time For Yourself / On Reluctant Dads

    In this - the first of many episodes where I'll spend some time answering listener questions - I talk through:
    1) How do you respond to people saying ‘life is hard - if you don’t force your child to do things they don’t want to do, how will they be prepared for life’?
    2) How on earth do you ever find time for yourself, and your own interests?
    3) How do I get my husband to see how beneficial home education can be?

    A Week In Our Life Without School

    A Week In Our Life Without School

    A lot of you have asked for a day-in-the-life style episode, so...here it is! I think there's a stack of important context that should always be shared as part of this kind of conversation, though, so this episode is made up of three parts (if you listen in, *please* make sure you go right through - taking any of this in isolation just...won't be as useful):

    Part 1 is some of the thinking we went through to arrive at the daily and weekly flow we have.
    Part 2 takes you through what that flow looks like for our three older children - who are 6, 11 and 14.
    And Part 3 is a few extra thoughts that I think should accompany any day-in-the-life style example. And yes - there is definitely some screen time chat in there.

    If you’re struggling to find the right rhythm for your family, I really, really hope there are some things you can take from this!

    Four Strategies For When Home Education Feels Hard

    Four Strategies For When Home Education Feels Hard

    This week I want to talk about what to do when this home education path starts feeling hard, because what we’re doing here isn’t easy. As parents, we’re taking on a huge responsibility by choosing to live a life without school, and there’s not always the support we need, or would like. Either practically, or emotionally. There’s no...set playbook for this stuff.

    Today, I’m going to talk through four things that have helped me when the journey has felt tough.

    Hopefully they bring you some comfort, some reassurance, and the ability to make your way back to those good days when they start feeling hard to find.

    How To Talk To Family And Friends About Home Education

    How To Talk To Family And Friends About Home Education

    One of the things we often underestimate when we decide to live a life without school - regardless of how excited about it we are - is how our family and friends will respond to it. How we’ll talk to them about it, and answer the questions that they’ll probably have. Because despite the growth and awareness in home education recently, we are still very much in the minority, and this path is still very misunderstood.
    With so many families joining to this path, I want spend some time today building some tools to help with those family and friend conversations.
