132: When an Unschooler Isn’t Interested in Maths

This week, I'm sharing and discussing the post When an Unschooler Isn't Interested in Maths. It's the promised update to my daughter Gemma-Rose's unschooling maths story. 

Also, I have a maths resource to share.

And I tell a couple of stories. One involves a huge kangaroo and the other ponders the questions: What is success? How do we measure it?

131: Making Unschooled Kids Learn Maths Just in Case

This week, I'm sharing a story called Making Unschooled Kids Learn Maths Just in Case. And I'm discussing the main points in it.

Is it sensible to make all kids learn maths just in case they might need it?

What if kids need maths to go to university?

What if they decide they want to go to school?

130: Are You a Curious Unschooler?

This week, I'm sharing a story called Are You a Curious Unschooler?

I'm also discussing the following questions:

  • Is everyone curious?
  • Or can we lose our curiosity?
  • Can we strew verbally?
  • Do we have to be good examples of learning for our kids?
  • Does our curiosity make homeschool recordkeeping easier?
  • How can we unschool and also be registered homeschoolers?
