This week, I'm sharing and discussing two stories about strewing:

 

Time For Some Strewing

 

Unschooling When Charlotte Mason Also Appeals to Our Hearts

 

I'm also talking about overwhelming times, how we don't have to be perfect, and looking for the delights in our days.

177: Encouraging Unschooling Kids and Mothers

185D73A7-80F0-4F99-907C-16C10B7DA1CF.png


This week, I'm talking about encouragement. I have two encouragement stories to share with you which I'm hoping you haven't heard before. But if you are familiar with them, will you think, "Sue is getting repetitive"? Will you consider giving my podcast a negative review? I hope not. Instead, maybe
 you'll offer some feedback. 

Do you have any ideas for future episodes of this podcast? What would you like to hear about?

Most of my kids are grown up, so often I don't have any current unschooling news to share with you, (unless, of course, you're interested in hearing about my unschool learning). Over the years, I have explored a lot of unschooling topics multiple times, and sometimes it seems like I have said everything possible. Could it be time to pack up my mic? Move on and do something else?

I'd love to hear your thoughts. I know they will be kind and encouraging!
