the network for radical unschooling families
I realize this post was 3 years ago so I am curious about your journey. What did you decide? I also wanted to share with you a very cool community learning center in Portland called Village Home Education Resource Center. We visited it a while back and we loved it:) We live 90 miles north of Portland but I am considering taking my kids there a day a week just for the fun of it. Check it out if you get the chance.
I started unschooling when my son was in kindergarten for the same reasons you mentioned. I am sooo glad we chose this path. He has been able to develop an amazing art of scuplting that I am sure he would have not had the time to do in a formal setting.
I hope whatever path you picked has been full of love and learning:)
