About the Parent Clan
We are the Parent Clan- originally from southern New Hampshire, we spent 3 years in north central Texas before taking to the road in July of 2010 in our 39 foot RV for a life of travel and continued connection. This blog is a chronicle of our exciting adventures as an unschooling, free living family as we explore ourselves, each other, and our world!
We are a family of 4 humans and 2 dogs sharing minimal square footage and maximal love of exploration and togetherness. How better to fulfill these two than to release ourselves from the physical and financial tethers of suburbia and pursue our passions?
Sarah podcasts and writes about unschooling (radical and otherwise), connected parenting/partnering/family living, and breaking into a life of freedom and joy at: www.werhumansbeing.com. She is a devoted and joyful mother, cook, playmate, and soulmate. She is the former co-owner/co-publisher of Rethinking Everything Magazine and is now steeped in enjoying each moment, re-discovering her self, and loving what is. As a former Registered Nurse of 12 years who has completely RE-thought health and the human condition, Sarah has attained a deep understanding of the fundamentals of joyful health and wellness that goes way beyond, and even undermines, much of what is traditional thought, taught, and followed in Western medicine.
Chris’ process of growth has most evidently resulted in the transition from cubicle professional to traveling online professor in business and network technologies for several universities. The journey has not stopped there, however. With increased time and headspace comes the energy and desire to dig deeper. And he does… daily. He speaks about conscious evolution and unschooling from the male perspective, shares how he escaped corporate slavery, and provides technological solutions for home and mobile A/V and networking.
Elijah (9 years) and Sadie (7.5 years) are truly authentic beings. They live according to a community code of conduct rather than sets of behavioral rules. Because of the distinct lack of manipulative and coercive parenting techniques, they do only what feels good (treating others well feels good) and constantly amaze those around them with their bright personalities, acute awareness of others and their surroundings, and sharp intellect.
We’re looking forward to connecting with you!
