What is unschooling?

Unschooling would be difficult to understand even if it were easy to define. From the point of view of the parent, it is creating and maintaining an environment in which natural learning flourishes.

    Hi Sandra,

    This reminds me of a definition I heard my 13 year old son give a neighbor:

    “I learn what I need to know for the things I want to do. I really want to do a lot of things. So I think I learn a lot.”

    I never had been able to explain unschooling this short and clear 😊

    Thank you for all your clear thoughts that helped me to get out of the way of my son’s thinking !

    I will put it on one my site, somewhere, too.
