Discovered this blog today, a mom living in backwoods Oregon unschooling her kids. She wrote am insightful piece on what makes a SUCCESSFUL unschooling family work. One of her points is key,” family commitment (everyone on board) ” .
I know several families where the mom (thinks) she is unschooling but that dad is kicking and screaming the whole way… This is one of the biggest sources of tension amongst unschooling families I know. My advice has always been to just keep plugging away- when your spouse sees it working he will most likely come on board. Beating him over the head with it won’t work. Unschooling is a LIFESTYLE choice that affects the whole family and not everyone one will be in the same place at the same time.
The post makes some excellent pints- worth the read:
