Hi ladies.  Not sure if this is an appropriate topic in this group, but I gotta know..what is unschooling exactly?  I've seen it said here and there and I'm not familiar with it.  I'm just trying to understand what it is and checking out different options for teaching my son in the future.  :)

from my understanding its stepping away from traditional schooling and using life as an educational guide, and more like child-led learning.....looking at your child's interest and abilities lead the way learning rather than parent led or even school standards.
