The elements of a great education:

  • A specific child.
  • An engaged adult who is listening and observing that child’s interests and aptitudes.
  • Find learning opportunities for that child.

Because I’ve been writing since we began homeschooling (more than 15 years ago), I’m able to look back at how I learned kids learn best.

I tried many methods:

So what brought me toward a more self-directed/unschooled approach wasn’t just reading on unschooling (John Taylor-Gatto & John Holt) but actually OBSERVING my kids.

What is REAL education??

A concept or experience that helps to serve a specific person to develop and become an adult that can participate in their community and offer the world something meaningful from themselves.

If they’re asking questions, it means they’re thinking. They’re either digesting something that I’m sharing or exploring something they heard about somewhere.

In other words, they’re learning.

Therefore, let them be curious & explorers.
