Riley, you're going to be an awesome dad. Your little man isn't even able to walk yet and you are already wanting to know what online schools are the best! lol. I'd give it at least 4 years before worrying about that, because by then things will have changed. lol. Huge props to you! I never had my dad around, he could care less if I'm even still alive.

Hey mate, that is the 2nd time you've played that clip from the audio book. Being a loyal fan of yours, and being from Alabama, I suggest you visit the state before you alienate some of your viewers with audio book clips that are categorically wrong. Comparing Alabama to Mexico and other 3rd world countries is completely insulting.

balance the scales of my givingness to the maternal and paternal needs of a family. 

Put up a flag or what ever is need to invite visitors but uninvited is that. 
My wife reminds me not to take the grands or her to questionable locations
or open door visiting. Not what she or the kidos need to learn.  Scheduled planning then re-planning allows for
family growth.  I live in Charleston and look forward to your visit. Will you be up the Cooper, Ashley or Stono? 

Not a sailor yet, rely on motoring.  Your invited to contact me if a motoring need
out of the Ashley area, opportunity arises.

I am a product of an Alabama education, four years of undergrad and law school so your book can bad mouth Alabama as a third world country, but he is mistaken. Saying that we homeschooled our two kids when we were in Tennesse and later Alabama because of violence in the schools. My children graduated with honors from college, so homing works. If you need information, I am sure my wife work be glad to provide in information.

Early Education: People will say - No public schools because I don't want my kid to be brainwashed in X way.... then they do home education and then immediately brain wash their kid to their thinking - whether it's politics, environment, religion or whatever. The key is to truly - truly expose your kid to all points of view - not just liberal - not just conservative - not just vegan -not just "environmentally conscience" (whatever that means) but rather truly provide an open education in which they can decide what to believe and think about the world. Typically people think they're providing an open eduction - when they're just trying to create a robot of their thinking.

I was homeschooled my whole life in Hawaii. It gave me the opportunity to surf, sail, and spearfish whenever I wanted. I never used an online program; only hardcopy curriculum and some khan academy videos when I needed explanation with harder math and physics concepts. I received a real high school diploma through a local school, did well on my SAT, and now I’m at the California Maritime Academy pursuing a bachelors. I don’t think you need an online program or people telling you what to do or teach. You’ll be surprised what you can do with just textbooks.

What I like (and admire) in Riley is that he never takes more fish than is needed. He never really hoards them, although he certainly seems to be capable to catch more than he actually does. Dinner, some for the freezer or a party with the neighbours, and he is done. I like that a lot in him.

My two cents on education is that schools (home or otherwise) are not where you learn about life. School is to learn history, facts, and the basics. It doesn't teach work ethic, integrity, ingenuity, or any of the other traits that make a person independent and strong.

What I've found matters most in life is all the other every day experiences - how you handle adversity and challenges, your daily habits, how you treat and care for others (family and strangers), and how you make them feel.

QualeQualeson - 5 years ago
+Sailing La Vagabonde I agree totally and apart from the fckboy part (which was a flippancy added for comedic value) I can't see how I'm misbehaving :) All this time that I followed your channel, I always read between the lines and/or put the content into a wider/deeper context. It's what I do.
So, sometimes my edge cuts a little, (it wouldn't be an edge otherwise) And sometimes my intentions are misinterpreted. But for all the backlash I may receive, I'll never be part of the "picture perfect Facebook postcard crowd" that typically dominates these types of topics. As far as I'm concerned, they don't really manage any kind of truth, and I'd rather be detested than following suit. Thank you for responding.

I have given it more thought to your encounter at anchor with two loyal patron's. You should introduce rules of engagement , and they should be available on all of your home pages and Patreon agreement. These are absolutely necessary for your family security. Loving people in general and gratitude for supporters is no reason to take unnecessary risk.

My 10 year old son in our and I travel full time in a caravan and we are child lead educators, or unschoolers it's been coined. I am a formally trained educator and really have had my eyes opened to just how great it is to educate a child using their interests, their questions and the things we come across in daily life rather than a pre-made curriculum. Being able to facilitate a holistic education that is tailored to my sons needs has been the difference between him hating learning, and having a passion and yearning for more knowledge.

I have a blog and facebook page where I write a lot about child lead education and how it works. Feel free to check it out at or - If you have any questions, just ask!
Anthea Elise

I am not a parent and have no desire to be any time soon if ever, so take this with a grain of salt. But a while back I got thinking about education and what I'd potentially do if I ever had any of the little blighters. Montessori and Steiner schools appealed to me, where helping children to think for themselves and develop critical thinking skills is important as opposed to "traditional" schooling where kids are taught what to think and what is apparently important to know. I was attracted to that idea, and also homeschooling. But I think there's nothing better than real life , like what you're doing, (not the organised reality that most are used to) to teach people the really important stuff.
On another topic I watched Captain Fantastic recently and think it might be up your alley if you haven't already seen it.
I'd love some more book recommendations from Riley!
MrJoshESL - 5 years ago
So here is a question for you. How come in almost every video recently you are hunting down fish with a spear, cooking and eating it and no bugger makes a fuss? Yet if I was to film myself shooting a rabbit and roasting it over a campfire, there would be a moral outcry and the video would probably get demonetized.

Riley thinking kids ..don’t worry again. But it’s good to think about education and future live on board.
This can’t be named problem but it’s a challenge for the parents. So address is with the heart. Teaching on board is done before and proven that most kids grown wiser than regular. Make sure they can interact with others even adults. Don’t spoil them with toys..
let them make there own them kids to be creative. Challenge their brains ..

Love how he mentioned Alabama. I received most of my education in a rural town in Alabama, and trust me when I say I am so thankful I was homeschooled for my last three years of high school. I learned so much more, that I never would have been taught in public school, in those three years. Currently, I am set to graduate with Latin honors, and I believe that have a lot to do with the motivation and confidence in the decisions I made while being homeschooled. When you have every possibility at your fingertips you have to be sure the decision you are making is the right one, and stand firm in it, or it will drive you mad!

And when he's a little older,
But as someone else has mentioned, don't worry about it too much. Tech will definitely change in the short time it takes for them to grow up.
My biggest advice as a father would be to make sure you and Elay read books to him every night. This paves the way for a passion for learning (and helps develop language skills ).

Hey, been enjoying your videos for years but don't think I've ever commented before. I'm building a small sail boat to learn in with my son and one day we can hopefully graduate to a big one! I am a teacher here in Melbourne so thought I might add in a wee thought that I am sure you have been contemplating. Homeschooling can work and for your situation with the boat and online business it may be the best pathway for your family. But education is more than learning things, it's about learning to work with others and developing socially and emotionally, as a father of a shy 8 year old I have no idea how he would do that in isolation even with great parents ;-) They need other kids around mate - that's the tricky bit. Perhaps you could take the kid out of school for a few months every year to keep the sailing and videos going and then film a bit of land life for the rest of the time, think your followers are locked in now and would be interested in whatever you get up to. Best of luck with it all - parenthood is great, knackering, but great - you'll love it!

Just thought I'd add that with AI and 4th industrial revolution upon us - interpersonal skills and creativity are going to be the most valuable human traits. I'm sure creativity won't be a problem but the interpersonal skills need a lifetime to develop.

I've successfully raised 4 kids, all genius level. Best thing to teach your kids is how to think not what to think- very deep topic but You'll never go wrong. Current education systems around the world basically teach pure stupidity, I wouldn't trust anything taught in schools as it's a mindset of teaching what to think not how to think. It's basic programming to be successful within systems designed to collapse over time.

good reading material, I think it's a MUST is all books on Holodynamics. It's a theory that should be discussed and debated. it's the best research I've found in my entire life as a researcher.

We homeschool our two girls. It is so much better if you are able to do it. Schools have 1 teacher to many kids that is why it takes so long each day. Basically it is a day care. Your kid doesn’t get all the attention the whole time. At home you can devote as much time as you like each day to teaching life skills and books. Most days take us 1.5 hrs of actual school work for our 3rd grader.

The most important thing is to instill a love of learning in Lenny. Since you so obviously love learning he will get it by example. Sometime back I gave you a list of Nel Noddings books about education. She is a legend in the field as well as a brilliant philosopher and feminist. Fortunately the schools here in Mt. View, CA and the surrounding area, are outstanding, but in school or out, learning to learn, and to love learning, is the most important component. Lifelong learning is the only way to thrive, or even fully survive, in the modern world. You and Elayna are going to totally rock as parents!

They offer Kindergarten to 12th grade, at least in the U.S. They teach a mainly classical education that's not biased specifically one way or another as far as ideologies are concerned. It's very well rounded. Definitely check it out!

With regard to education, I think it is far more important to first focus on socializing with other toddlers as much as possible. My daughter grew up in Japan and went to a day care center from 18 months old starting with an hour per day and building up to full days. This was not, not because of career requirements but because we wanted her to integrate with other kids as early as possible. When it came to kindergarten (age 3) and elementary school (age 6), she was already incredibly confident interacting with other kids and being away from parents. We firmly believed it helped her through her formal education.

Don't be frightened of teaching, it's just like showing the little guy one day how to sheet a winch. Lenny will be a wiz on the boat before he's five - you watch. The wonderful thing is it will unfold before you, as quick as that. Might even make a bona fide Crows forward pocket.

Although I think you shouldn’t think about it right now, I have never thought homeschooling is a good option. Knowing just 2 people that have gone through the system, I cannot say it’s empirically proven its bad, but just in general. One of them attends my course in university, and although she’s brilliant at mathematics (Istudy maths and physics) she has never had many social interactions because of homeschooling, and as such was as if she had missed half her childhood/teenage years. Another girl I know was homeschooled cause she wanted to be a tennis player and a similar fate arrived, but she was just totally concentrated on success, so it’s a different story. I guess you’ll think about it when he grows up more, but careful with that.

Reilly, it's Not Hard to raise a Boy. First, KEEP him AWAY from Public School. So he won't be subject to all the Negativity, like bullies, peer pressure, and the Pussification all the female staff WILL Bombard him with. Next, teach him to Read WELL, for Reading is CRITICAL. You can Learn ANYTHING Alone IF you can Read. The rest is not too complicated. Teach him all that YOU Know he will Need to be a Good, Solid, QUALITY MAN. To Ride, Shoot Straight, and Speak The Truth, first, and then of course the mechanical stuff, sailing, weather patterns, Navigation by Hand, etc. And to Rely on ONLY Himself as he gets Old Enough. He will have a Tremendous Advantage with you and Elayna ALONE, because you will relate to him as merely a Small Adult, so he'll Bypass most of the Dumb Kid Stuff. He'll learn to talk WELL early, because you won't talking 'Baby Talk' to him. And he WON'T learn to Cuss. He'll have his Boat Chores, so he'll grow up not being TERRIFIED to DO THINGS, especially Ones that NEED to be Done. Responsible, in other words. And you won't BELIEVE the Shit you'll Teach him just by letting him Watch YOU Do it. Oh, and be CAREFUL what you say, because Kids have Reverse Listening. When you think they're Listening to you, they Are NOT. Likewise, when you're CERTAIN they're Ignoring You, they are Soaking Up Every PARTICLE. NEVER forget this. My daughter Blows My MIND all the time with stuff I taught her when she was little I was SURE she never heard...

Where I live I meet tons of cruisers that include families with kids. 99% of the time those kids are the most level headed, the best at interacting with ALL ages and always eager to learn more.

Homeschooling...we did that with uniformly great results, professionally, anyhow. Our kids-who-are-now-standouts are split on the idea. Some hated it and resented it, and some are happy to have been raised with few conventions (Google Cat Bigney, on "The Great Human Race" on Nat Geo channel. She was also just on Discovery in Europe-made a sailboat out of beach trash.) Without exception, all of them are very successful humans...but be aware that when they get to be teens, then is the time to let them find more of their own path. BTW, All the best you both with your little man.

BSKeeble - 5 years ago
So Riley let me get this straight you are taking advice from a guy who included Alabama as an uneducated place to live. I have 5 kids and all of them are very smart and very successful. All educated in Alabama. My Granddaughter just took the ACT for the first time as a 10th grader and scored a 28 with no practice and no one is buying off coaches and college administrators. She will get to go to any college she wants by the time she graduates High School. I would look for advice from people that know what they are talking about. That's advice from someone who has lived here my entire life was educated here and have done alright by the Grace of God. BTW I like sailing and own a sailboat right here in central Alabama that's why I watch your videos. I hope to continue but comments like that will make me move on. That's the same kind of arrogance that causes problems all over the world.
Sailing La Vagabonde

BSKeeble you’ll have to read the book. He is absolutely not at all setting up a 15 yo for prejudice against any place. He is talking about technology moving so fast that education anywhere not being able to keep up.
BSKeeble - 5 years ago
+Sailing La Vagabonde My point is not to give a 15 year old advice that automatically sets him or her up for prejudices against any place that may be a wonderful place. I travel all over the US from New Hampshire to Miami to California and all places in between. I meet a lot of people from many different educational backgrounds. It's not what your education is but what you do with it. Good guidance comes from people that care about you and steer you in the right direction, someone who will help you navigate the world. Kinda like what you do with La Vagabonde. You just put out a video about dodging reefs you gently steered your boat around danger. Kids are the same way.

You are seeing offence where there is none.

As a dad, i've always wondered why people do this. Warn future parents about how rough it's gonna be. What's the point there? Breeze or storm, it is what it is. As with all things in life there are ups and downs to every wave we encounter... So we just ride them.

You should contact the Sailing Zatara family. They have four kids and are live aboard cruisers and do home schooling on board. The kids are older now, but they have been sailing for some time.

Excellent video. As a teacher, I say don't worry about school yet. Enjoy his infancy and toddler years. You and Mom are natural educators. By the time he is 4 there will be newer education models on the net, and you will have years to find one to begin with. Also, don't get all hooked into one program. Things change and so do you all. God Bless, TY for all the sharing you do.

My sister and I were both home-schooled and from the age of 11/13 we were unschooled. My sister speaks 3 languages and is a junior doctor. I have 3 Diplomas in hairdressing, massage therapy and SPFX makeup artistry and live a very successful life. My mum taught us the many important life lessons through many different experiences. We had friends of all ages and from all sorts of places. I loved my childhood and have only ever looked at my homeschooling/unschooling background with gratitude. I hope you guys find the right thing for your family.

And in regards to your child's education, in a traditional sense where a child goes to school it takes alot of attention from the parents to teach their kids about work ethic . She is 16 has a part time which she was promoted to supervisor in under a year. She is a honor roll student and focused on being a doctor. I drive a forklift and her mom's a hairstylist . Parental support is key. Plus the kids joining the workforce today are pathetic. If you show your son how to do all the things you do he will make all those other kids look pathetic!

When it comes to school what is missing in most schools is life skills.Like how to handle financial matters and look after yourself , in public schools individual attention from teachers ,the classes are to large and you are trained to comply and follow the herd.

As someone who is currently in the modern education system the one thing I can recommend is that when the time comes, USE THE ONLINE STUFF. Books are good and books contain information that is laid out in a cohesive way, but the volume of information on all manner of subjects is ludacris on the internet. Worksheets, tutors, libraries, anything can be found online. Personally things like Khan Academy have helped me tremendously, but I don't know what the landscape will be like when Lenny is ready. Just look for it and I know that the little man will receive a world class schooling experience from the high seas.

I do project based learning in school. I am given my work every Monday with the goal of getting all of my work done on Thursday so I don't have to go to school on Friday's. That could maybe work as a good home school system for Lenny when he gets older

Twinkl has got some amazing resources for teaching!

Also some great Apps that can be downloaded on tables/phones like Bee Bot (for when he's a bit older and ScratchJR. Both these things will help learning about Algorithms.

At a later stage you might want to look at getting one of these, they're waterproof an d a great source of Education

Last one, this website has got some amazing resources for home schooling too!

All this coming from a music and IT teacher :) all the best!

Greetings! We are in the U.S. and home schooled each of our boys for different reasons and in different circumstances. Older was home schooled for high school with an accredited school with workbooks to purchase. He now has a Masters Degree. Younger son was home schooled in earlier years, attended traditional school, then a blended charter school for high school. This included half class time and half online. He is still figuring out the next step, but our plan is to work a partial year, and spend several months of the year traveling before I am too old! With research, I am confident you and Elayna will find the best situation for Lenny. It is individual and I do not believe all must travel the same path with no choice or options. There is also something to be said for practical life skills which are gained outside of classrooms. Safe travels!
