Interesting the number of times the dude says 'it's my job to put what I think should be in the curriculum in her path'...

I never did that. I trusted that my kids would learn --just as I have-- as much as they wanted, from whichever sources they discovered. I never understood any comment about 'I'm interested in X' to mean 'I want more than I can find on my own' and to me, it seemed that my kids were perfectly capable of finding the richer and broader edges of the things they were interested in, without me cluttering up their path with my idea of 'valuable' resources.

Not the least because I really, really hate other people's choices of 'what I should read,' on any given topic --they don't understand which part of it I find interesting, what I've already seen and discarded, they seek to alter my developing viewpoint...

I love the woman who said she 'started with the rules' --no tv, no sugar... that's so common!

I also love when 'experts' declare things that they even admit are 'their thoughts' but nevertheless Declare 'can't be done.' Math is a hilarious example: either it is 'real' and 'necessary' --as he says, 'out there in the real world' -- or it isn't. If it is, they'll learn it, and want to learn it for their own reasons. If it isn't, how can it possibly matter if they never, ever do?

I can't 'give my kids the world'... I don't own it, it's not mine to give. It's theirs already, as much as it is mine. I just have to avoid closing them in a room for most of their waking day...

Thanks for sharing this... an interesting piece!

I don't have time at the moment... but isn't Dayna Martin the woman who does the hilarious pattern doodling in math class?

Have you seen those? Amazing... remind me, and I'll try to find them...

I've seen all these on YouTube when I first heard about unschooling. I've probably seen all the videos on unschooling that there is. When I get interesting in something, I really throw myself into it lol!
