Stories of an Unschooling Family

I share the LOVE and JOY of living an unschooling and gentle parenting way of life. I ponder ideas while telling family stories, chat to my unschoolers, and share strewing resources.

This week, I'm talking about multipotentiality. In particular, I ask the following questions:

  • Is it okay to have multiple interests, to pursue one thing, get bored and then move onto something else?
  • When are we finished with a topic? When people move quickly between interests do they lack perseverance and  commitment?
  • Should we encourage kids to focus on only one interest? Is this best for a future career? Or is okay to have multiple interests?
  • Is my family full of multipotentialites?
  • Are people who move continuously from one interest to another frustrating?
  • How does the way I'm wired affect my online life?

This is my last podcast for the year. I'm off to explore new thoughts and ideas. Thank you for supporting my podcast during 2016. I hope you'll listen again when I return after Christmas!

This week, I share a story about the extraordinary ordinary things of life.

I talk about:
  • How we should live in the present moment
  • And not spoil it by worrying about possible future suffering
  • How each ordinary moment is made extraordinary by the power of love
  • How our unschooling lives are far from ordinary
I also share some big blog news.
