What is Unschooling?
… resources to help you explore living and learning without school
Hi! I’m Pam Laricchia, author and long-time unschooling mom from Ontario, Canada.
My three now-adult children left school back in 2002 and I’ve been enthusiastically exploring unschooling ever since. My own unschooling journey has cycled between discomfort, exploration, and discovery, and I’ve written four books and many magazine articles about the fascinating things I’ve learned about unschooling and parenting along the way. I also host the weekly podcast, Exploring Unschooling, with more than 100 episodes in its archive, and I love working directly with unschooling parents through the online Childhood Redefined Unschooling Summit.
You’re welcome to join me as I share the sometimes messy but always valuable learning that has helped me move beyond many of the conventions of education and parenting and discover the engaged and joyful lifestyle that lies within our reach.
