Unschooling gets a bad rep and it kind of drives me nuts. I am not an unschooler but I love the philosophy behind it and I am working towards finding the freedom and flexibility to adopt this homeschool style. It has the potential to offer our kids so much more of a tailored education, to follow their interests, to find their strengths and run with them! It is similar to the idea of “hack schooling” in this video.
It’s time to deal with some of the misconceptions that people have about this incredibly powerful homeschool style. It’s time to talk about what it can look like and the broad variations of what that can look like in different homes. The reality is that there is no “right” homeschool style, from a half-time unschooler… I hope that this shows you a different side into this method of homeschooling.
