This week, I want to share one of my conference talks, Time to Think.
So many of the questions and concerns we hear from unschooling parents boil down to the fears that bubble up when we project our current situation into the future. So, it’s not surprising that the value of bringing ourselves back into the present moment comes up pretty regularly on the podcast!
In this talk, I dig into the ideas of being present in the moment, of being patient with our children, and of giving them time to process their experiences and connect the dots in the ways that make the most sense to them. I also talk about mindfulness, choice, trust, and more. It’s fascinating how time weaves its way so significantly through thinking, learning, and being—in other words, through unschooling.
I hope you find diving into these ideas helpful, wherever you are on your unschooling journey!
