Collection: Unschooling and the Teen Years

Throughout my years of working with homeschooling and unschooling parents, I've seen that the teenage years can be a time where new questions begin to arise about unschooling.

  • Experienced unschoolers see their children growing towards adulthood and wonder how to best support their hopes and dreams for the future.
  • More traditional homeschoolers are looking for a new approach. Their homeschooling methods and techniques that worked when the children were younger aren't working now that their child is becoming a teen.
  • Parents who have never tried homeschooling, but are frustrated with their teen's negative experiences in middle school and high school, find unschooling might be just the solution they're looking for. 

Maybe one of these scenarios describes you?

If so, I have a lot of resources to help you out!

Common Questions I Cover with Parents on Unschooling Teens

  • Do teens need more rigorous academic work?
  • Does a play-based approach to childhood learning need to shift gears during the teen years?
  • What is required to prepare unschooling teens for college?
  • How does unschooling impact teen social life?  
  • Can an unschooling approach really prepare my teen for adulthood?

 I was feeling nervous and that is was a weird thing to do. Sue is open, non-judgemental and keeps the conversation flowing in a constructive manner. It was very easy to open up and speak to her about personal matters.

I needed help from someone with grown unschoolers who could guide me through this particular age and issues.  I was familiar with her previous advice to other parents via Facebook and also, knowing she had three grown unschoolers allowing for three different personalities/paths. Sue listens!  She roots out the triggers, provides objective views and offers solutions that you wouldn't see because you aren't "there" yet or you're mired in emotion. She gave me a new perspective and renewed confidence in my role -  plus understanding this age (18) and her need for attachment but also independence is normal but can be hard for both parent and child, even with unschooling.
Don’t hesitate to get Sue’s help!
