Some Common Questions...

Q. Is Unschooling different from Homeschooling?

A. It is. Homeschoolers tend to duplicate school with subjects, tests, teacher-driven lesson plans. 
Unschoolers know that all humans are hard-wired to learn. So instead, we focus on strengths and interests, exploring curiosities, partnering with our children on what they want to learn.

Q. Can I start Unschooling if my kids are older?

A. Yes! It's never too late! All kids want that connection with their parents (even if they're not showing it right away) and want to explore their own interests.

Q. Do you have a book?

A. Why yes, I do! Thank you for asking!
Homeschooled Teens: 75 Young People Speak about Their Lives without School

Q. Can an average mom from the suburbs do this?

A. Of course! I did! My kids are all grown now, with families, degrees, businesses. They loved their childhood - and doors were not closed for them!

    Unschooling Guide: Strewing

    Over the years, so many have asked how to use strewing in their unschooling homes.

    I’ve created an Unschooling Guide all about Strewing!
    Here's what you'll find inside this month's guide:

    • What Strewing is - and what it isn’t!

    • Suggestions for ideas and ways to strew in your home.

    • The importance of kids being able to refuse those oh-so-wonderful strewing “opportunities” you’ve set out.

    • Journaling pages to figure out how strewing can work in your home

    • What's going on if you’re trying to use strewing to gently “nudge” the kids toward areas you believe to be important.

    • Resources, links, and more!
