In 2005 I created An Unschooling Life, a blog detailing our unschooling experience after adopting our three children. Over time, An Unschooling Life became a hub for unschooling support and advice. The blog has been featured in print and digital media and was home to the popular Unschooling Carnival. I’m in the process of updating and moving all the posts to this blog where they will be housed under the An Unschooling Life section. This post was originally published on September 25, 2006.
Ron and Andrea over at A Typical Homeschool asked unschoolers to answer the following question.
Unschooling my children has enabled me to see (fill in the blank).
Unschooling my children is enabling me to see that learning is everywhere. The more they are out of school, the more I see the curiosity and spark in their eyes.
Unschooling my children is enabling me to see that learning is fun and enjoyable. Learning is not filling in a bubble on a test. Learning is not being told to memorize a bunch of facts that they could very easily find, in a matter of minutes, online or in a book.
Unschooling my children is enabling me to see that their interests and passions are valid and important.
Unschooling my children is enabling me to see them…for all they are and all they can become.
Unschooling my children is enabling me to see that life really is for living and exploring and singing and creating and discovering and trying and doing and being.
