I’m continuing my miniseries, In Celebration of Unschooling, sharing the draft of an as yet unpublished book I wrote a few years ago. The book looks at unschooling through the lens of parenting.
This week, we’re diving into Chapter 7: Family Relationships.
In this chapter, I explore moving beyond power struggles, the idea of fairness and how it doesn’t mean equal, ways to cultivate strong and trusting relationships with our kids, and the value of fostering joy.
These ideas around family relationships can seem unconventional, how focusing on supporting and connecting with each family member individually actually cultivates stronger family relationships. Yet, as so many unschooling families have discovered, when individuality is cherished and nurtured, the family flourishes.
The Living Joyfully Network community
The Network is a wonderful online community for parents to engage in candid conversations about living and learning through the lens of unschooling. Our shared goals are to embrace lifelong learning, develop strong and connected relationships with our children, and cultivate a thriving unschooling lifestyle in our families.
