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.

98: Unschool Maths and Uncomfortable Ideas
Jun 10th, 2017 by storiesofanunschoolingfamily at 9:40 am

This week, I'm talking about:

  • uncomfortable ideas, the ones we think we'll never consider
  • how we sometimes deceive ourselves because we can't face the truth
  • our unschool maths story


I discuss the questions:

  • If our kids don't have formal maths notes to show, what can we put in our homeschool records books?
  • Is it okay to strew maths like we would science or history?
  • Is there a problem with some maths games?
  • Is there a problem with real life maths resources?
  • Can we call ourselves unschoolers if we don't unschool maths?


I also talk more about:

  • those times when life becomes overwhelming
  • how we can help each other when someone isn't coping
  • empathy and misbehaviour
  • our weight loss and fitness adventure
