I've just started unschooling my two boys, ages 9 and 13. They have been in public school up until now. I get the whole unschooling philosophy and I think it's great, but I could use some advice and perspective on making the transition. So far (two weeks) I've just been letting them do whatever they want to and not pushing any particular activity or direction.
I understand that a transition period is necessary and natural. However, I am a little concerned that they will not move out of their current mode of playing video games and watching Netflix all day. As if every day is Saturday and there is nothing they need to get done.
OK, so what advice can you offer on managing this transition so that hopefully they end up at some point actually interested in learning something some way other than via video games and TV reruns?
