1. How do people successfully unschool older kids when there are babies/toddlers in the house that restrict the opportunities for the older one? For instance, I can hardly read to my 5yo because my 2yo constantly interferes.
2. This question is similar in that it deals with multiple children, but it’s a bit different perspective: how does unschooling work with three young children?
3. I feel so much pressure and guilt knowing that family and friends would not understanding unschooling, so I hide it by saying we homeschool when I’m asked. Is that ok? I feel so guilty, and then that guilt turns into doubting whether I’m doing the right thing, yet deep inside I know I am. How do I deal with this constant back and forth internal struggle?
4. I’d love to hear about games that have provided family fun. Any kind of game: board games, computer games, waiting games, word games etc.
