I just joined, thanks to Linda's post in the Current Events board. I never knew this was here but I'm so glad I've found it!
I'm Ruby, mama to 4 year old Seri and I have an SO of 9 years. Right now we're parked in NYC and enjoying it but we've been very nomadic for the last 9 years and are looking for a place to settle outside the frantic city :)
I've secretly been interested in radical unschooling for years, even before Seri was born. We mostly live by the principles of RUing, in our family life and parenting as well as educationally. And yet I've never called myself an unschooler, mostly out of fear of judgment and shunning. But I'm growing more comfortable in my own skin, my independence, my motherhood, and I'm starting to embrace it more and more. Even better now that I've found a community, however small, to talk to on here.
So this is my coming out, I guess!
