Katt, thanks for the ted talks link, that was great!

This is the best time to be an unschooler/homeschooler.  At least in this  hemisphere, spring/summer is in the air, we can be outside as much as we want, we're gardening, hiking, looks like this coming Tuesday will be our first beach weather day, yeah?  Not sitting inside a school for 7 hours, that's what we're talking about.......

Sunshine, I like the feelings poster but what's with the last one "beauty"?  It doesn't seem to belong with the other feelings.

As an homeschooler/unschooler I am constantly questioning myself - Am I doing this right; am I screwing my kids up; am I doing enough; how long can I keep this up; etc etc.  I guess it's a good thing to question the status quo and keep trying to improve - maybe that's what education leaders should be doing!

That's beautiful Mary. Good for you letting your kids be themselves. Them knowing you appreciate their hard work will motivate them even more to excel.

This 7-year-old unschooler taught himself piano one day.  He sat for four hours (which is really unlike hime!) and plowed through the Thompson's 1st level.  Hasn't played since but he's taking guitar lessons now.

I would never send my kids to Indoctrination camp. Way better to spend time with them and learn from each other, while being very close and connected as well.
