What is Unschooling?
… resources to help you explore living and learning without school
Hi! I’m Pam Laricchia and since 2002 I have happily spent countless hours supporting the unschooling lives of our three children.
As the primary unschooling parent in our family of five, my own unschooling journey has cycled between discomfort, exploration, and discovery. Over the years, this sometimes messy but always valuable learning has helped me move beyond many of the conventions of education and parenting and discover the engaged and joyful lifestyle that lies within reach.
