Judy Arnall's book Unschooling to University and Discipline without Distress

Every homeschool parent has worries. We are ingrained that either us or teachers are responsible for our children’s education. So if our kids mess up, that reflects on us. We all have to remember that every child is responsible for their own education. They own it. We have to get out of their way, let them learn what they want to learn and they will soar ahead. Our kids are going to learn with or without us, with or without direct teaching. They are going to learn. You can’t force a child to learn or stop a child from learning.
