About Dayna

Dayna Martin  has been inspiring others for over a decade by sharing her experience through natural birth, attachment parenting and Unschooling.  She is an activist,  educator and author of, Radical Unschooling: A Revolution Has Begun, and her newest book, Sexy Birth. Dayna was the first to publically come out as an Unschooling parent through the media. This allowed thousands of other parents to proudly live their lives without fear. Although shunned by some  for making their lives public, she has followed her heart and greater mission to free children of the bondage of traditional parenting and education.  The movement of  Unschooling is growing tremendously thanks to her bravery and unrelenting drive to share Unschooling with the world. Dayna believes that keeping Unschooling as a grassroots, secret movement is unrealistic and even damaging in helping to bring more peace into the world. Why live in fear for a choice that is valid, honest and part of the evolution of human rights? Her choice to live out loud is one with powerful inspiration that is changing the world and offering more respect, peace and freedom to families worldwide.

Dayna been featured on Dr. Phil, CNN, Nightline, Australia’s most popular morning news program, Morning Sunrise, The Jeff Probst Show, ABC’s hit show, Wife Swap, Fox News, 60 Minutes Australia and the Bethenny Show. She was used as an informational resource for Unschooling stories on the Discovery Channel, The Today Show and Our America on the OWN Network and was even filmed for 12 hours for the Oprah Winfrey Show. She travels the world as the UnNanny, and is a featured speaker at the major parenting and education conferences worldwide. Dayna recorded and uploaded the first video ever, about Unschooling for YouTube!

Radical Unschooling is an evolution of our understanding about learning and the rights and respect of children. We are on the cusp of change and many people are looking for alternatives to the traditional schooling model. With Unschooling, we are reprioritizing. We are taking back our freedom and putting happiness, connection and family first! - Dayna Martin
