About the parents

Mike was raised in Idaho by his parents, about whom nothing’s known as he respects their privacy; he hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, so is believed to be an only child, and apparently this is the reason why he has many children today. He attended a local high school, at which he became interested in fast cars and making money; Mike hasn’t talked about his further education, but it’s believed that he enrolled at college upon matriculating in 1996, and that he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2000. Before he and his family went travelling and focused on their YouTube channel, Mike ran his own company TERRA Oils.

Megan was raised in Houston, but hasn’t spoken about her parents either, however, it’s said that her father’s a businessman, and that her mother’s a lawyer; she’s also believed to be an only child.

Megan was interested in numerous activities while growing up, and spent several years practicing gymnastics. She was also a member of her high school’s drama club, and appeared in various plays performed at the school. Upon matriculating in 1997, Megan chose not to pursue a college degree, but to find work to financially support herself; she worked various jobs prior to meeting Mike, including being a babysitter, a waitress and a bartender.

The family has often been criticized for their way of life, especially Mike and Megan who have been accused of child abuse, because they have taken their children out of school, so that they could all together travel around the world.

The two are homeschooling their children, and are allowing them to learn whatever they want, rather than what they would have to at schools.
