80: Radical Unschooling

This week, I discuss these questions:
  • Is radical unschooling about allowing kids to do whatever they like?
  • But if we stand back and give our kids that kind of freedom, will life become chaotic and unproductive?
  • Could radical unschooling require an active rather than a passive response from parents?
  • And how did our family become radical unschoolers?
I also share some family news, some local history, and a few resources.

79: Learning from Life, Record Keeping, and Strewing

This week, amongst other things, I discuss the following questions:

  • Does working together strengthen family bonds? What about doing hard things together?
  • Is it okay to support our young adult children as they pursue their dreams?
  • How can we turn real life into homeschool records notes?
  • Do we sometimes overlook opportunities for making notes? And do we miss opportunities for strewing?
I had some technical problems with this episode. I apologise for the poor audio quality. Hopefully, I will sort everything out before I record the next episode!

78: Go Out There and Make a Difference!

This week, I answer the following questions:

  • Where have I been for the past few weeks? What have I been doing? Where am I going?
  • Am I making a difference? Are you? Should we encourage our kids to go out there and make a difference?
  • Will kids learn something if they have a need?
  • What new Evernote feature am I excited about?
And lots more!
