: Loyal reader Daniel
liked last week’s lead article, “Full-Timing Families
” and shared these thoughts:
I was particularly taken with the idea of “roadschooling.” But even so, I feel like the article presents a false binary: Either you are full-time on the road, or you are living in our usual “rat race.” I grew up in a family that valued home and time together more than those things were valued by most other families I know. And because my father was a teacher and had summers away from work, we took several multi-month cross-country road trips — all without leaving the permanence of home, school, and job. Being on the road for two months is much more than most people ever get. So I think that, rather than “either-or,” it may be possible to have “both-and.”
Thank you, Daniel, for reading the piece and reaching out with your connections. Loyal readers, if an article this week resonated with you, please hit reply and start a dialogue.
