Re: How Unschooling is like Breastfeeding

As a mother who ff I still understood the metaphor, especially since you later talked about how even recipes from your blog arent immune. I think the metaphor is about our own parental instincts, which most any mommy or parent can relate to. Of course I also believe that following those instincts could lead to all kinds of schooling options, depending on your children. Right now I follow mors of an unschooling approach, but my children are both pre k so I have many years ahead where things could change.

Beautifully written!!! As a new homeschooling mom frustrated with curriculums I find your article encouraging. We have tried 3 different curriculum none of which have worked well for us. We are in a season of unschooling, it's what is right for us right now. I've breastfeed & formula feed my babies & found nothing offensive in the article. What what works for one child or family may not work for others & that's ok.

Re: How Unschooling is like Breastfeeding

This reminds me of the talks about unschooling being the natural continuation of natural parenting. It was beautifully written.
