The Educational Spectrum–VIDEO

When explaining the core differences between various types of education, I wanted a physical representation of them. I wanted to show how they related to each other, so that it would be visually easy to decide what type would work for different families. Since nothing like that existed, I created my Educational Spectrum. I talk […]

Rules vs. Principles–VIDEO

One of my favorite things to talk about is Unschooling. I feel that it is the single most life-changing decision that I’ve ever made. Becoming an unschooling family has broadened my life in more ways than I could ever say. Because of this, I speak at homeschooing and unschooling conferences. I love sharing my experiences […]

Are writers more compassionate parents? 20 IDEAS TO HAVE PEACEFUL NIGHTS WITH CHILDREN

As I discuss characters and their unchangeable traits with other authors, I’m often surprised at how much these people believe that their character “has a right to be his/her own self without interference from others”. To me, this is the heart of good parenting. Our children are born to us as complete and whole humans […]

Passion and Drive in Life

What compels you to get out of bed in the morning? What drives you to do great and amazing things? For me, it’s the people in my life and the projects we create. I need to be constantly creating, expanding, and forging ahead in order to feel fulfilled. Without that, I feel empty. I also […]

You might call it obsessed, I call it PASSIONATE

The great thing about living an unschooling lifestyle is that we come to truly appreciate our children’s (and our own) passions. My daughters have never been required by myself, my husband, or anyone else, to learn things on a particular timeline or schedule. We’ve never given them tests, quizzed them on their knowledge, or sat […]

Rules vs. Principles

I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them. If I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. — Robert Heinlein In a conversation about rules and principles in a family life, […]

Unschooling: It’s what we DO, rather than what we DON’T DO.

When people find out that my family considers ourselves to be Radical Unschoolers, they almost always become confused and then angry–in that order. The confusion comes when they hear the definition of “radical unschooling”. I state, calmly and succinctly, that it means living without school, artificial rules, or others’ definitions of what we should or […]

What is this thing called UNSCHOOLING? What are unschoolers like?

Since every unschooling family I’ve ever met has been seemingly completely different than all the others, it made me wonder: just what do these people all have in common? How is it that they all call themselves unschoolers? Just what is this unschooling philosophy about if it can draw so many people from such diverse […]
