I am asked regularly what Unschooling actually is. There are so many misconceptions that I thought it would be helpful to write my definition.
Unschooling does not mean Uneducating, or Unparenting! It means offering your children a perfectly individualized education, instead of the same training that everyone else receives through schooling. Unschooling is not only more respectful, but it is more natural, healthy and rooted in freedom. This allows children to carve out their specific niche in this world that will foster their continued happiness and success.
Schooled: “educated or trained in a specified activity or in a particular way.”
Educated: “the act or process of imparting or acquiring general knowledge, developing the powers of reasoning and judgment, and generally of preparing oneself or others intellectually for mature life.”
Keep learning and following your bliss!
Peace & Love, Dayna
