137: Guiding Our Kids by Radically Unschooling

October 19, 2018

This week, I'm returning to the topic of radical unschooling.

I'm sharing a story about junk food and poor hygiene and then discussing the following questions:

  • Is it okay if our kids make choices that are detrimental to their health and happiness?
  • Should we stand back and let kids make their own minds up about everything?
  • Or is it okay to guide them?
  • Do all parents influence their children in some way?
  • How do we guide our kids without forcing our values, beliefs and practices on them?
  • What's the difference between unschooling and unparenting?
  • Why do I think everyone should radically unschool?


I also share 

  • My bad haircut story
  • My Instagram news
  • An update about the unschooling book I'm writing
