Location independence is something that many parents want. For Caroline King and her family, a life of family travel and location independence happened as much out of necessity as out of desire.

EER056: Unschooling, Family Travel & Location Independence

Location Independence meets Family Travel

Living in her home country of Sweden, Caroline faced the country’s “skolplikt” (compulsory education) system, which required that her kids attend Swedish schools, but the businesses that she and her husband run had them traveling around for up to four months out of the year, and they wanted their young sons with them.

    Enjoyed the interview with Caroline. I am the English grandparent. A retired teacher and I fully approve of the education the grand children and their parents are getting.

    • Thank you for chiming in, Pat. And you are certainly right when you say “the education” that your grandchildren and their parents are getting. My wife and I are getting a similar education, as well.
