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 share a few stories from a time when we used to ponder such things as:

  • was Helen of Troy still beautiful after ten years of war? Was she still worth fighting over?
  • are Elvis feet different from everyone else's? Why can't we walk in thongs (flip-flops, not underwear!)

I also talk about:

  • how we never used to unschool maths
  • how we sometimes deceive ourselves because we're not ready to face the truth
  • how unschooling is a continual learning experience for parents as well as kids
  • how I forgot something very important when we began unschooling

This week, I'm sharing our unschooling story. Years ago, we started as unschoolers. We then tried different methods of homeschooling before returning to unschooling:

  • Behind That Cream Front Door
  • Undercover Homeschoolers
  • Doing Our Own Thing
  • Time to Unschool

This week, I talk about:

  • Trust: It's easy to trust when things are going well but is that real trust?
  • Being a support driver for young learner drivers: Do we sometimes have to be adventurous and do things we don't want to do?
  • Children who don't seem to fit easily into the world: Should we watch out for ways to help each other?
  • Praise: Is it good or bad? How do we encourage our kids to be humble about their talents?
  • Creativity: Do you ever yearn to create but don't have the opportunity because you have small children who need your time and attention?
  • Creative Art and English resources: art documentaries, Jane Austen mini-series, film scores and cinema history
