… an online resource for parents wanting to live joyfully with their children through unschooling
Hi! I’m Pam Laricchia. (If you’re curious, it’s la-RICK-ee-ah.)
And I’m fascinated by unschooling.
By our individually unique and inspiring unschooling journeys. By the endlessly different ways the unschooling lifestyle plays out in our families. By our children!
My mission is to help parents cultivate a thriving unschooling lifestyle in their family.
And my ultimate vision? To foster a world full of connected, supportive families who explore the world side by side with curiosity and joy—adults and children alike.
My family began unschooling back in 2002 and the experience has been more inspiring than I ever thought possible! My three children are now young adults and the depth and strength of our relationships still takes my breath away. Their self-awareness and creativity shines through. Life isn’t easy, but our unschooling lifestyle has helped us all learn ways to move through our days with intention and grace—at least most of the time.
Unschooling is an unconventional choice, but as you come to understand learning more deeply and see it in action with your own children, you will likely find that the principles of unschooling begin to weave seamlessly into your days. It soon grows beyond an educational method to a lifestyle.
Are you ready to answer the call and begin your unschooling adventure? START HERE!

The beautiful images you find scattered around my website (and the family pic above!) were created by my daughter, Lissy. You can explore more of her amazing work at lissyelle.com.
And here, for the curious, is the original Living Joyfully treasure map! It was the home page on an earlier incarnation of this website, and was used as the basis for the banner image above. It was a lot of fun to create, so I wanted to make sure I tucked the full version of it safely somewhere. Here is good. 🙂
