the network for radical unschooling families
Joyce, in response to someone else, taken totally out of context for this new topic:
"Why should anyone be offering help they think will be harmful? Not even, I think, if the person is asking for it."
That's a brainstormed list of "how to screw up unschooling," from a discussion on a discussion list elsewhere.
It was not offered with the intention of being harmful, but in fun, in jest. When someone wants to do the opposite of what is recommended, because they're habitually defensive or just tired of "people telling them what to do" or something, that list can be a helpful tool.
I that same other discussion, someone asked a fascinating question:
"Don't you need to help me?"
DO we "need" to help other unschoolers?
