#69: Embracing Waldorf Education and a Holistic Lifestyle with Lindsay from Kentucky

What if the traditional education system isn't the best option for your child? Join us as Lindsay from Kentucky shares her transformative experience transitioning from a career in the health and medical field to homeschooling her three children in a one-bedroom cabin, using the Waldorf education approach. Lindsay’s concerns about the health, development, and safety issues in conventional schools, including the stress of active shooter drills, motivated her to seek out this alternative education method, which emphasizes a slower, play-based learning style. Through her personal story, Lindsay provides an intimate look at the challenges and triumphs of homeschooling and how it aligns with her family's holistic values.

Curious about Waldorf education? We explore its principles and developmental stages, from early childhood to adolescence, with insights from Lindsay. From identifying cocoons to the trade-offs of a one-income household, Lindsay sheds light on the sacrifices and rewards of rural living. Additionally, we tackle important health freedom issues, such as water fluoridation mandates, and the role of community activism in challenging such regulations.
