Anna Brown joins me this week to answer listener questions. We talk about finding ways to live together when we have different styles and needs, considering diplomas and next steps, allowances and family money, and how learning looks different in unschooling families.
Question 1 [00:00:20]
How do I make a minimalist, quiet home dynamic enough for a lively and curious sociable 10 year old?
Question 2 [00:10:49]
How to support a child who is considering school, with concerns from family and concerns about bullying?
Question 3 [00:20:01]
Can unschooling fit under an “eclectic homeschooling” approach?
Question 4 [00:33:47]
Mum would like some ideas about how to manage an unschooling household when one of the parents is highly sensitive.
Question 5 [00:39:17]
Do unschooled kids learn reading, writing, and maths. And how does it compare to traditional school and what they’re learning in that regard? If they only want to play video games all day are they permitted to do so? And if they are allowed to follow their bliss and their bliss is to sit and be lazy. Then what?
Question 6 [00:48:06]
How do unschoolers get a high school diploma? Or do they? And if not how does college fit in?
Question 7 [00:53:36]
Looking for ideas around allowances, paying for chores or not and managing requests.
