Do you give advice to people using different methods?
First let me say that I am not a full fledged unschooler. I use curriculum. I require certain subjects daily but I am very flexible how we accomplish them. They are always free to do something else. I find myself giving advice at times. Sometimes it comes across well and sometimes it doesn't. I also find myself sometimes not saying anything. Earlier today I responsed to a mom having trouble with their child. She asked what do you do when your child stops answering questions correctly. I told her I stop asking questions and start answering their questions. Sometimes I think people really downplay how much learning happens during play time. I remember reading in Einstein never used flash cards that 70% of play time involves Math.
A couple of weeks a good friend of mine was talking ot her kids. She was asking them quesions. They answered and then they started asking her questions. She told them it doesn't work that way. I couldn't believe it. I thought about saying something but I didn't. Sometimes I find myself giving only enough advice as I feel they can handle. I myself went through a very gradual progression. I started out traditional and was bored myself. I had a son who couldn't stand writing but would continually ask to do more Math. He is 11 and now loves typing stories on his blog. He still loves Math.
Hope everyone is having a great week.
