the network for radical unschooling families
I am in search for RU families with 6+ kiddos. I am particularly interested in how larger families rhythms of the day go such as daily tasks and room sharing. We are expecting our 5th child in 4 wks and as our family grows and our rhythm changes to meet everyone’s growing needs I find myself looking for better solutions to daily tasks and bedroom sharing. I am at the end of my pregnancy and find myself exhausted with little sleep and have lost my umph to complete daily tasks so you can imagine the condition of my home lol. Looking for some advice and stories from larger RU families.
Peace & Love,
This might be a little bit of a different question, but I am wondering how larger families deal with kids who feel like they are getting short changed? my 14 year old DD is into horses and the hunter/jumper thing, it is an expensive hobby especially with all of the showing costs, clothing needs, hotel stays ect.. on the other hand my other children(I have 7 total) want to enjoy hobbies as well, some aren't into things that cost as much and some want to be in things that are also costly. How do you fairly give everyone what they want? I just can't justify spending $$ on each and every single thing, yet I wonder if it is fair that one child is into something that costs more? this causes resentment among them and a fair amount of arguments ect.. sometimes I feel like nobody can do anything then because it all costs so much. My daughter has been riding since she was 4 and everyone tells her she has alot of natural ability and could go far. Wondering how to make it all equal or fair?
