I would tell you
It’s hard because when I was thinking about worldschooling, I wanted someone to say take step one, take step two, do this, and do that. I wanted a nice, pretty, little, guided plan, but now that I’m on the other side, I know you can’t, every life is different. No one will be able to specifically help you with the specific things you need help with unless you are given a coach.
So just do it. I think what I did I made a list of all the things that I was scared of and either got scared or got a little more realistic with my fear. I thought where would I like to go? How much would it cost? What do other families spend? Write down all of your questions and answer your questions. How much does it cost us Then go and see, go and talk to Worldschooling families, go to the Facebook groups, use the Worldschooling Central website. Find out the answer to these questions. When you’ve answered all of these questions and only need to answer one question a week or one question a day, do so in a way that works for you. Then when you’ve answered all of those questions, you can look at them and say, okay, these are all the questions I was scared of and here are the answers, and then when you need to go back and work through them again. Then you’ll think, okay, so we can afford it. I was worried about that; now i am not.
When you’re done, choose a date. We were pushed, we chose an appointment in four months. We didn’t really have much choice when Matt said to his boss I won’t be coming to work as of that date and we told our landlord we were going, you really don’t have too many options and you just have to do it.
So I think that “just do it” comes along, lined up your ducks, asked all these questions, felt safe, made decisions where you want to go, set your budget, all of these things. These are things you can do without making a plan. You could just say, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could do this? And do this plan. If you’re in that headspace, you could do that, but you might think we couldn’t do this, but if we did this we could do it. The more you do the little things, the more realistic it becomes for you because you realize that it is actually achievable.
Talk to the families who are doing this. That was the greatest help for me in speaking to other people. I am a normal person. I went to university and dropped out because I didn’t like it. Ella was born when I was 23; I’ve been with Matt since I was 18. Matt is a builder. He’s as big a kiwi as possible, he likes barbecues and beer and rugby. We’re just normal people; We’re young, I’m 28, Matts 29, we haven’t had a lot of money behind us. We’re literally just a couple who wanted this, and that’s how we figured out how to make it work, and that’s exactly what you do.
If you want to do it, you will reach a point where at some point you want it enough to do it, and if you let things get hold of you and don’t work through them, then you may just not be done yet. Maybe it is not the time for you and all you need to do is wait a little longer, study a little more, take short world school trips, go on trips for a month and see if you like it. If you don’t want to travel just yet and want to get involved, just start worldschooling without travel. Just do this, let your children choose a topic and ask them what they like about it and learn more about it.
