After this week’s Alaskan Bush People episode, Discovery Channel had a special one-hour episode. It was behind-the-scenes moments that didn’t make the regular episodes. One of these included a moment of strife between Noah Brown and his wife Rhain.
The two had a minor disagreement concerning their son. Here is what happened and how they worked things out in the end.
Noah Brown disagrees on son’s education
Noah Brown grew up in the Alaskan bush. With his brothers and sisters, the Brown family received homeschooling from their mother, Ami. According to Noah, Ami taught them all the regular school classes while Billy helped teach them how to survive in the bush. However, this also had one drawback.
As Noah said in the episode, he doesn’t like other people very much. He had no friends as a child outside of his siblings and does not get along well with others. Noah had one big thing he looked for when house hunting in Alaska. He didn’t want to see a neighbor’s house anywhere near their home. According to Rhain, Noah’s lack of social skills was because he never was around others when he was a child. She wants a different experience for their son, Eli.
Rhain told Noah that she wants to enroll Eli in a pre-K class at the local school. Noah didn’t know why she would want that. Yet, Rhain said she wanted their son to be around other kids his own age so he could develop social skills. The two had a minor argument about the importance of Eli socializing, but Rhain won in the end. Noah admitted that the pre-K could teach reading, writing, and arithmetic, and he could teach life skills at home.

However, this might play into their move to Alaska next spring. If Rhain wants Eli to be around other kids and learn to socialize, that will end when they move to their new island home in Alaska. Noah has no desire to be around other people, and this means secluding Rhain and their boys from society in general.
Rhain was all in on the move, but it will be interesting to see how she reacts when they end up alone in their island home, with no one around but her husband and two children. Noah Brown grew up this way, but it might be a culture shock for his wife once they get settled in. Whether this will work out as well as Noah hoped remains to be seen.
