"The easy way out"

In response to someone who had written, in 2003, that she had thought about unschooling, but maybe just because she was looking for an easy way out. A couple of responses from that day:

"Unschooling is not "the easy way out," it's the joyful way IN. The way into peaceful family life, happy children and meaningful learning that lasts a lifetime." —Ren Allen

"Unschooling isn't easy. It's full time. What it takes is a change of belief and priorities. Lots have done it, and I'm sure you can too." —Sandra Dodd

  1. Your blog is the first thing I read in the morning! It starts my day out with great perspective on why I unschool. I started unschooling 2 of my 6 kids about 3 years ago and now I have all of my kids ages 17-4 at home with me.:) There are always negative opinions about our choice to unschool but when people meet my children, there is no denying how interested and interesting they all are. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with us and providing a huge support network for all of us unschoolers!~ :)

    « En réponse à quelqu'un qui avait écrit, en 2003, qu'elle avait pensé au unschooling, mais peut-être juste parce qu'elle était à la recherche d'une solution facile. Voici quelques réponses de ce jour-là :

    '' Le unschooling n'est pas « la solution pour s'en sortir facilement », c'est la façon de vivre joyeusement au-dedans. Le chemin pour une vie familiale paisible, des enfants heureux et un apprentissage significatif qui dure toute une vie. '' ~ Ren Allen

    '' Le unschooling n'est pas facile. Il se vit à temps plein. Ce que ça prend pour le vivre, c'est un changement de croyances et de priorités. Beaucoup l'ont fait, et je suis sûre que vous le pouvez aussi. '' » ~ Sandra Dodd
