What is Unschooling?: Living and Learning without School

Children are born curious, creative, and wired to learn--and we value those traits in adults! So why, as our children grow up, do we often insist they change to fit into the education system, where curiosity is replaced by curricula, creativity by conformity, and learning by memorizing?

If you'd rather nurture your children's curiosity, creativity, and love of learning, let me introduce you to the world of unschooling.

In this short book, we'll explore some of the most common questions people have when they first hear about unschooling:

What is unschooling?

How will my child learn?

Without a curriculum, what will they learn?

How do I know they're learning?

Will unschooling work for my child?

But what if my child already has trouble at school?

What is deschooling?

How do I get started?

Life in the real world is much bigger and more exciting than a school can contain within its four walls. If you're ready to embrace life and eager to share its wonder with your children, unschooling might be for you!
