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 […]

Multiple Intelligences Simplified–VIDEO

In describing what Unschooling is to a non-homeschooling person, the first misconception that I usually hear is something along the lines of, “But… People learn best in school. Why would you not want your kids to be where people learn best?” To me, and all Unschoolers, school is not the best place for any person […]

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 […]

The Socialization Myth and Teens

Quick:  Name a high school teen movie. Doesn’t matter when it was made. Okay, now name another, and another–again, it doesn’t matter when they were made. Now, what do they all have in common?
