Hi everybody! I joined the network a couple days ago and am looking for unschoolers in London. I live in Wembley, which is in North-West London, does anybody else live in that area?

I'm a nanny and babysitter and I'm looking for families who want occasional babysitting. I understand that when parents from unschooled families want to go out it can be difficult to find a bbsitter who understands your values and who will just fit in straight with what your family and children are used to.

I've worked with children for 10 years, I'm vegetarian, I don't smoke, don't drink alcohol, I'm spiritual and I get on very well with children and young people. I have looked after up to 4 children at a time (and occasionally more), from newborns to 12 yo. I can cook, clean, bathe/shower and play a lot.

I have been reading John Holt books for a couple years now, as well as books on attachment parenting and other topics which have really helped me to improve my relationships with young people and children.

I have great references and you can phone some parents I've worked for in the past.

Whether it's for bbsitting or letting me know you also live in North-West London I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi Just found this again after a long while after not using this email address just wondered how everyone is doing.  I unfortunately have become almost house bound still trying to find out what is wrong but looks like fibromyalgia and am trying for DLA have to go to a tribunal on Thursday.  The boys are both now much taller than me and doing well.  Martin is struggling as he is now having to look after me doing things that are above and beyond the call of duty.  We are looking to move as we need a bigger place and some land to grow food on and keep goats and hens.

Hi there! Any other families in Warwickshire out there? We are relocating to rural Herefordshire next week and would like to make links :)

Hello Sandra,

Thank you for your message, we are planning on coming to the conference and are looking forward to hearing you speak.

Thank you for the links too!

Marissa Tommasini / Marissa Poppelman:

The link to your facebook page isn't working, on your profile and I saw your question by e-mail but can't find it in the forum.  You're phasing in and out!  

But you might get some contacts if you post a on the wall of this page, and you might find people from a link here, too:  http://sandradodd.com/world

IN SURREY, this July, is a little conference.  It's called the LiTTLe conference, even!  Joyce Fetteroll and I will be there from the U.S. and there will be several U.K. speakers, too.  Please plan to go there!    http://lttl.org.uk

Hello! I would love to connect with any unschoolers in the Kent/ East Sussex area, we live near Cranbrook, so far I haven't managed to find any fellow unschoolers. Is anyone out there!

We are located in Germany and looking for connections to other unschoolers in Kent - near Broadstairs - as we are going there from 15th to 29th of September 2012 again.

We are radical unschoolers - it's just our nature and I was never in the need of asking what "unschooling" is about - because I had already been doing it for years when I discovered that I'm not the only one in the world ;-)
