Unschoolers Check-In
 
Are there enough of us here that we could start up a thread?

If not, I need to find a good unschooling support group or forum. I just need to be around others who feel the same way I do. Dh isn't completely on board with it, but he sees the sense of it with our eldest DD. I think it is just so far out of the realm of what he has been exposed to, that he is having a hard time comprehending how it might actually work.

My curiosity is piqued! Can you fill me in on what unschooling is all about? I have a 2-yr-old and a 10-month-old, so we still have time to make decisions about their education. Thanks, mama!

There's a Yahoo! group called Always Learning and also a Facebook group called "Radical Unschooling" that you can check out.

IDK if we are unschoolers right now... since technically we are starting some of the K activities and reading for the curriculum we're using next year. It's a Charlotte Mason curriculum. Since we're not being really scheduled about anything right now it feels like unschooling.

We are unschoolers. :) I've found some good groups on facebook... one for unschoolers in our local metro area and one for Catholic unschoolers. But I'd chat here too. :)

I have a crap time trying to explain Unschooling, so here are a couple links to people who can explain it better than I can.

Thanks, I will check them out =) I have tried several times not to be a radical unschooler, but I pretty much failed at it. :giggle: I'm about ready to sell all of the curriculum I've purchased and be done with it.

I have been reading a lot more of the Sandra Dodd Unschooling articles and watched an interview with her. I am fascinated, even if I don't 100% agree all of the time.
