This week, I’ve put together a solo episode. This episode is geared to parents who are newer to unschooling, navigating the paradigm shifts that come with questioning so much of the conventional wisdom around learning and parenting that we absorbed growing up.
Spoiler alert: there are no unschooling “rules.”
But I think more experienced unschooling parents may also appreciate the reminder. As I dug into writing this episode, peeling back more layers for myself, I was surprised to discover how the idea of “rules versus principles” can be applied to so many of the shifts we make on the unschooling journey!
I also talk about some things we can do to explore and expand our comfort zones. Because as we let go of our need for rules and control, it can sometimes feel very uncomfortable.
