It means no rules. Learning and living as part of one another. Not cutting the day up into little pieces with tasks which have to be fulfilled because someone says so despite the lack of sense or usefulness. It means our lives are our own, our paths are unique to us and that we don't answer to anyone else. Our children don't have to change who they are to 'fit in' and neither do we. Hopefully it means a likelihood of them growing up whole and free and happy with who they are and the possibilties that are open to rhem. After all, if you've already been allowed to facilitate all your own learning and skills by adulthood, chances are you'll feelmore empowered to live the life you want than a child fresh out of prison, sorry school!
how long have you been unschooling or homeschooling?
Well theyre only 3 and 1 but the way we see it us unschooling is ehat happens if you just follow the natural process and don't stop and replace it with a different one.

a little about me
Andrea newton. At home most of the time these days. Ran own business before daughter was born, as holistic therapist mostly in primary schools working with kids who were struggling at school! Both my husband and i has big issues with school ststem but that was the experience that clarified it fir us. When we heard about unschooling the lights just went on. Also interested in waldorf approach esp in creating a lovely environment and having nice materials for creating with and being inspired by, but not confortable with rigid structure. Would love to talk to others. Have been v isolated and don't no other ppl in this path yet, though some v good friends of our's.have just becime parents and are v interested.
