Anna Brown joins me again this week! This month in the Living Joyfully Network our theme is Not Back to School. It has been a rich month of checking in with ourselves, quieting the outside noise, and focusing on our kids and the joy around us. Anna and I talk about the “back to school” messages that pepper this time of the year. How they can sometimes knock us off-kilter and have us questioning our choice to not send our kids to school, and how we can use that discomfort as a jumping off point to remember WHY we chose unschooling in the first place, to re-engage with our kids and see it in action, and to re-commit wholeheartedly to that choice. Because unschooling is a choice.
- remembering our why
- the value of turning our gaze to our children and our days
- not judging our inside by someone else’s outside
- the value of finding community
- the choice to activity engage with our children
- stretching our comfort zones to facilitate and partner
