"Hi, I'm coming to this quite late so you've probably already dealt with them but I wanted to reassure that you will more than likely be ok. We've been Home Edding for for 6 years (unschooling for 3ish) and our LEA contacted us 2…"
Knowing that my boys are complete in and of themselves, while they need my help support and guidance they do not need me to impose decisions upon them nor to decide what they should be interested in, when, and how they should be interested, it means providing opportunities but not expecting them to be taken up, it means if they show an interest then supporting that for as long as they want and in as much depth as they want.
how long have you been unschooling or homeschooling?
Gods I hate these kind of questions I never know how to answer them, I knit, I spin, I crochet, I make my own soap, grow my own, make my own cleaning products, I try to live my life in tune with nature, but those are things I do not who I am. On reflection I don't think I really understand this question so I hope what I've put will suffice.
we lived off grid for 9 years:for me and Mick and it was fine, we also had a wood burning old fashioned raeburn cooker that did our hot water and central heating, we had a (very un-environmentally unfriendly diesel generator) so mick built us a water wheel that produced between 1.5 and 3 kw of power for us, however this was not consistant or indeed enough for our needs and we also had kei to think about so we decided to get mains electricity at a coat of 12.5 thousand pounds! anyway Mick has now done a feasibility study on the site and he is going to put in a much bigger system and we are going to sell back to the grid. but the answer to your question is living off grid is OK if you can cope with the alternatives and the inconsistency of the flow of power.
thank you for inviting me to be your friend, what does that mean exactly?
i am so new to all this i am not sure what my response should be?
anyway i live 25 east of Aberdeen and up until last year we lived off grid, i too grow my own veggies, keep chickens, knit, sew i am also in the process of being assessed to be a foster carer
We live in Shropshire and have been unschooling our boys for 12 years now. I run a yahoo group Unschooling Uk which I started to find other like minded people to join with. the group was originally called Respectful Parenting UK but dies a very early death hence the name change
