Any unschoolers local to Angus Scotland give me a shout :)
Hi - just joined this group and really keen to meet local-ish unschoolers. I live in Powys, mid-Wales... anyone nearish?
hi folks,I'm new here-mum to 2 lovely boys one at home, one at school. i unschool my 6 year old, and my 13 yeay old when he's not at school(his choice), i am at the beginning of a huge learning curve, the path were on feels the most and comfortable, though my husband has his doubts, he is trusting me, does anyone have a partner who's not quite so sure about radical unschooling.
I have been unschooling Lenny for a year, though when he first came out of school i tried work books, so we have naturally fallen into this rhythm, i would find it hard to ever go back.
The hardest thing for me is letting go of t.v, bedtimes, ds, i am trying but i have a tired boy, who wants to stay up and watch dvd and play ds for most of the day!! that is hard to get my head round!
think ive posted in the wrong place!! meant to say hi, any unschoolers in Cornwall!!
hi - I'm involved in organising the unschooling camp in dorset. You're very welcome to come along to that, we'd love to see you. However, it is obviously a long way for you to come from Scotland, so if you can't get to it because of the distance, why not just organise something yourself?
This time last year, I knew no other unschoolers in the UK and was really feeling the need to find some, so I posted something on this forum to see if anyone would want to meet. It took me out of my comfort zone, but from here and the UnschoolingUK Yahoo list, 4 families got together in a park one day. We had a great time, and from there, it gathered pace, turned into a regional group and we've made some brilliant friends along the way. It's made a huge difference to me and my family to be able to hang out with other unschooling families.
Last year, some of us from that regional group went camping for a long weekend as a fairly last minute arrangement. Had such a great time that we went for another weekend as soon as we could before the season was over, and started plotting for a longer/bigger camp for this year.
Some of the activities we've done as a group have involved a level of organisation, but most have been a case of saying 'anyone fancy meeting up at this place on that date' (including the camping). I'd definitely recommend giving it a go!!
PS just to be clear, the camp is just a camp, there are no speakers or organised forums. It's very informal and is 'just' the chance to hang out with other people following an unschooling approach, and chat and play with people who get what you're doing and why!
