I am learning more and more about unschooling. It seems that we are already unschoolers at heart. I do not have a set learning schedule, I like to think that we learn all day everyday.
I know this is how I want to live, however, I struggle with the need to have Alex sit and do ‘schoolwork’. I am now realizing that the problem lies within me. I was raised in the school system. My learning experience took place within those brick walls. I need to now break those walls so I don’t impose them on my children.
I am now reading about deschooling and realize that I need to begin the process. I am finding this website extremely helpful.
Don’t expect right now to feel smooth. The days spent in school are like living with a broken leg. The days when unschooling runs smoothly are like living with two strong legs. But the deschooling phase between them is like living with a cast while the leg heals. It won’t be as bad as school but won’t be as smooth as unschooling.—Joyce Fetteroll
So another adventure in our homeschooling has begun. The work on this part is all for me. I am ready for it!
I would love to hear any advice that anyone would care to share as I embark on this journey, thank you!
I love homeschooling!
