I would like to know if there are any other parents out there, who have themselves gone through transformations in their OWN lives because of the difference in the freedom your family can have from this unschooling journey, even with both parents working full time.
**It must be what it feels like to get out of prison. I feel that by me doing this, I am changing into a different person and that, in itself will give my children a chance to be with different mother than they had in the past.
The changes and transformations that I have been experiencing have really effected every other area of my life, even in my working environment (the schools).
Letting go and trusting in the good of things, even in the face of sometimes huge anxieties and fears related to this unschooling journey, appears to have been the key to unlocking the many self imposed prison doors that I had surrounded myself with.
The people who started me on this journey through reading their books were, John Gatto and Holt. More Gatto than anyone else. He helped me believe that anything is truly possible, not just for my kids, but for me too.
Maybe, I thought, it's not too late for me either!!!!!**
