Homes of Radical Unschoolers: Peek Inside!

For years, I have facilitated a Radical Unschooling support and information group on Facebook. Approaching 20,000 members, parents who are new to Radical Unschooling can join and ask questions to more experienced members. The most popular questions revolve around punishments, freedom and releasing limits on foods, media/technology, hygiene, bedtimes and how to live in partnership with one’s children through the philosophy that I advocate for and promote through writing, speaking, media appearances and sometimes, through visuals, like memes and snapshots our our lives.

Many people are curious what the homes of Radical Unschoolers look like. They wonder how parents facilitate learning, using their homes as the nucleus of their children’s passions and interests. This varies from free family, to free family. One thing that they all have in common, is the focus on child-centered learning and created joyful, positive spaces for their children to learn, explore and grow with peace and freedom as the backdrop.

This week, a few members of the group posted photos of their homes. I loved the energy of the photos and was inspired to share them here, for others to see and learn from. I feel that giving people a glimpse into the homes of people living a life so differently, can make them realize that we are more alike than we are different. When we share a peek into our sacred spaces, we give others inspiration to create their living spaces, outside the box. 

Keep in mind that although most of these homes are clean and tidy for the photos, they aren’t always in this state. Living with children at home means that messy days are just part of life! How clean and organized a home may be is individual to each, family. Never compare your home to another and don’t forget that our homes aren’t simply spaces to display our things. They are spaces to explore passions and interests. They serve many purposes for our children’s learning, joy and growth. For this reason, each home shows is perfectly individualized, according to the needs of the children in the family. They are unique, beautiful and each one of them, special.

  1. Awesome! As we adjust to Unschooling life I often wonder about other Unschoolers homes because though ours is almost always a mess, it’s a mess with a purpose. I am proud that my home is not just a display for guests but a comfortable nest for our growing family.
