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!

Find Ongoing Support for You AND Your Teen

My group coaching program covers topics of interest to both parents and teens, plus offers a community for you to connect with other families who are also unschooling teens.

Our December 2019 Unschooling Workshop will include my 25 year old unschooled daughter Alyssa. She will be available to answer questions from parents and teens who wonder if this can really work.

Alyssa will meet with the teens online through zoom monthly, where they can ask real questions and get answers from someone who has been there!

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?
