the network for radical unschooling families
Hey there all, I am a mother of 2, ages 7 and 4. My daughter who is 7 doesn't seem to be into writing or reading much, and although we do have may notebooks and books to read, her interest is elsewhere. More like in playing outside, and playing waitress all day. With all the snacks I end up eating during the restaurant games, Im afraid soon I won't be able to keep up! hehehe... So although I do love and enjoy that she plays a lot more than the "conventional" reading and writing, I can't help but think that maybe, just maybe she might need a source of inspiration. Perhaps something enthusiastic (like knowing a letter shall be coming soon in the mail) to get her going. So I thought... why not post a blog to see if there are any other unschoolers with children around that age, 6-9 that would like to become pen pals with her. I had mentioned this to her once before and she became very excited about it, and she only could think of her cousin to write to, who didn't write her back :(
So, if there is anyone out there with a child looking forward to having a pen pal from NY, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can exchange addresses.
And if anyone from this group happens to live in NY near the Rockland County area, please feel free to also email me, and hopefully we can plan some dates together.
Thank You all,
