Welcome to Anthony “Tony” Galloway, Jr’s second Fare of the Free Man Child episode. Missed the first episode? We gotchu... Episode 215: Fare of the Free Man Child (A Tony Galloway Ting). Tony is co-founder, director, and facilitator of The Heartwood School, a local (Atlanta) Agile Learning Center, and one of our Presence Counselors at Raising Free People Network.

On this episode, Tony covers the topic of childhood and adulthood from the perspectives of 

  • how childhood and adulthood coexist
  • how adults tend to relate to children
  • how parent-child relationships change over time
  • the importance of nurturing emotional intelligence
  • honoring and cherishing childhood

He goes on to offer insights and reflections on how childhood and adult-child dynamics play out in a Self-Directed Education framework, and he speaks to some of the aspects of adulthood that sit within the confines and expectations of certain structures of power that center production and achievement over all else.
