Thanks for posting. I did see that link on the Home Page. It's kinda interesting that unschooling has been in the public eye lately. It's a very poorly understood subset of homeschooling. Many people view it as unparenting and that's sad because that's almost exactly wrong. Unschooling takes concentrated parental involvement but the focus on following the kids' passions seems like giving up control.

And it is. Control is not part of my vocabulary. And we go beyond (John Holt style) unschooling as an educational philosophy, we embrace it as a life philosophy. So that puts me on the radical end of a radical weltanschauung.

Story of my life!

For anybody who's interested, there's an impromptu blog carnival on the subject of unschoolers saying "I'm that mom/dad" which is a nice insight into the life and thoughts of various unschoolers. Starting point is here with links to many posts: http://zombieprincess.blogspot.com/2010/07/im-that-mom.html
