"Hey everyone - I recently started a Minecraft for Parents FB group. Almost exclusively unschoolers in there. It is a closed group and I have to approve everyone to join. Nice way to connect with other families whose kids are playing. Come join us…"
"We are moving to Little Rock on Thanksgiving and leaving behind a huge, local group of unschooling families. It seems there are few unschooling families around Little Rock, but I'm sure they exist. Drop by if you're in the Little Rock area."
It's a natural extension of our trust in children to learn, to removing limits and rules and instead learning to trust our children with principles and facilitating their own choice making in things such as bedtimes and food choices.
how long have you been unschooling or homeschooling?
Following many of unschooling principles since C. was born. Radical unschooling for four years.

a little about me
Bilingual English/French family. I was born in Connecticut and have lived in Miami, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina (twice - once in Asheville and once in Chapel Hill), and Buenos Aires Argentina. I'm about to add Little Rock, Arkansas to my list.
I love the beach, reading good paranormal fiction, learning about new things, and travel...not in any particular order.
I'm in Facebook too so if you'd like to "friend" me just drop me a message with your email so I can add you :)
It is so funny, I was just looking around for unschooling things, logged into this account from a couple of years ago, and found you--was looking to join your facebook group and then saw your friend request. Are you hear in St. Pete? I would *love* to talk to you more about unschooling and just connect in general. Please let me know! You can also reach me at email@example.com. Thanks for contacting me!
Hi there, Laura! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I see you're relocating, also. My daughter and I are headed out on a month-long adventure to find the perfect place to live. I'm thinking Corvallis is it, but we'll see how it feels once we visit each place along our travels! :-)
Best wishes on finding the right place for you and your family!
Hi Laura! I had looked at your blog a while ago. I didn't know your husband was French. It's funny, I also spent a semester "abroad" in Buenos Aires when I was in college. Does your daughter speak French and Spanish? I'd be curious to know more about how you handle multiple languages in your house. I speak English to dd, dh speaks German to her, and dh and I speak French to each other. So far dd doesn't seem to understand very much French, and prefers speaking English, although she has no problem understanding German (she's 3.) I'm trying to see this as conducting a little linguistics experiment, and trying to not put pressure on dd to learn any particular language... It's hard sometimes living in Montreal, people expect her to know French!
