Pam shares the five paradigm-changing ideas about learning and living that freed her family from the school schedule: real learning, following interests, making choices, why not yes, and living together. These ideas were, and still are, key to our unschooling lives.
Pam discusses the four characteristics that have had the most positive impact on their unschooling lifestyle: curiosity, patience, strong relationships, and trust. Understanding why these characteristics are so helpful makes it easier for parents to choose to respond in ways that support unschooling, rather than undermine it.
Drawn from her popular blog at livingjoyfully.ca, you’ll find essays tackling everything from learning to read to visiting relatives, all organized around nine key words that have been woven into the fabric of their unschooling lives: deschooling, learning, days, parenting, relationships, family, lifestyle, unconventional, and perspective. Come dig deeper into your understanding of unschooling and what it might look like day-to-day in your family. The theme is life; the lens—unschooling.
