28: Talents, Dreams, Working and Unworking

April 23, 2015

In this episode, my 20-year-old daughter, Imogen, and I talk about what she wants to do when she finishes her university degree in a few months' time.

  • What are Imogen's dreams for the future, and is it possible for her to follow them?
  • Should I encourage her in these dreams?
  • Or should I point her in the direction of safe and secure employment?
  • We all have talents. Are we obliged to use them?
  • What might the word 'unworking' mean?
  • Using our own definition of the word, should unschooling lead to unworking?
  • Unschoolers are different. Can this be frustrating?
  • And what new adventure might Imogen and I be setting out on?
