Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoy your visit. I've wanted to start this blog for quite some time now but, I have to admit, I was a little nervous to make the change. If you ask my friends they will tell you that when I speak about unschooling my energy changes and I sparkle with excitement. We are embracing this life, but we're still stumbling along the way.
Is there only one way to unschool? Or two? I used to think that, but now I know there are so many ways and levels that no two unschoolers are the same. Of course, there are those who will tell you that their way is right and if you don't do it their way then, well, you're doing it wrong. I believe you need to do what is best for your family.
When Princess was young we went far left radical. She fell apart. We knew that this wasn't working for our family and made some adjustments. What I realized is that we didn't need to follow any unschooling rules, we simply needed to live our lives with respect. We don't have arbitrary rules in our house or any rules really. In unschooling they talk about principles and I suppose that is the best way to describe how we live. We may be a wee bit more rigid than the far left, but Princess and I often talk about how she feels about how we live. It's important to me to make sure that Princess feels respected.
Some may not understand our life, but it works for us. We live our life without bedtimes, no screen time limits, no chores. We do our best to be open and listen to each other, respectfully. I fail at this more times than I'd like to admit, but hey...I'm learning, too! I hope you'll join us as we learn together and maybe you seasoned unschoolers will have some words of wisdom as we journey through this unschooling life. I hope to see you again soon!
