Respecting the child's choices. Trying to be positive instead of building walls of "no". Trying to understand what he/she wants to learn instead of only looking at the seemingly destructive outcome. Learning to free yourself from your inner control freak, negative attitude or anger.
how long have you been unschooling or homeschooling?

Hi Bettina. Thanks for asking. :) It's going ok. Doesn't matter what-- I tend to forget items at the grocery. But I did get a cooking thing (digital) which is sometimes helpful. We're also shopping at Costco, which we weren't before and that's fun.. different things to buy, so changing things up is nice.
