Different and ever-changing needs

"'Unschooling' bed time and meals is about responding to each child's different and ever-changing needs."
—Holly Blossom

Learning that children's needs are different and ever-changing is the path to mindful parenting.

If a parent can be aware and responsive in one area, it's easy to expand into others. Some parents understand it first with "academic learning" (before they accept the connections in all learning). Some understand it first about food, or clothing. It will all connect, though, the same way the trivia children learn will coalesce into a body of knowledge.

The Holly Blossom quote is from writing newly added to the Bedtime page.
