Parents of Teens

Remember that the Coaching Call for Parents of Teens happens every 2nd and 4th Friday on Zoom.
You can get details about the upcoming call as well as easily access the recordings of past calls. 


I can't recommend this book enough! It's old, but it's so helpful. When we parent teens, we can get really scared of some of their choices - and that makes us want to control them.. which, of course, backfires. This book really helped me - and countless other unschooling parents.

Teen Connections

Helping Our Kids Connect
Add your information (and your kids' interests) to find others who share that interest and may like to connect. Currently, this is open to Creating Confidence Members and Unschooling DIY Subscribers.

Game Night
Watch the weekly emails for links on Saturday nights (not all) for a quick hour of Werewolf (or something else fun). A great way for kids within the group to get to know each other.

Thursdays - 12N Eastern - 15+
Saturdays = 12N Eastern - 10-15 (all playing)


Unschooling & Transcripts

The video is coming. The original rough draft had a ton of tech issues, but it's in the Units area of the FB group while you wait.

It can be used on its own.


 Hesitant Teens Workshop

Grown Unschooler, Alyssa Patterson joins us to talk about questions your teens have.



Back in 2017, we did a workshop/book club on this book. I'm revising it for us now in 2020. But all the old slides (with TONS of notes) are available here.
