Unschooling is not a training camp to become a worker bee. It is a philosophy that depends on a deep respect for our children’s process and passions. We are not in the businesses of creating employees rather helping them find their own abilities to be creators and entrepreneurs by pursuing happiness first.
There is more room for self exploration and life experience when you choose the freedom of unschooling. Unlike school where curriculum is set for you on the basis of what someone else thinks your child ought to know.
In order to thrive in this lifestyle, one must have a deep respect for their child’s “soul’s path”. When we ask a child if they are interested or not in a subject, respect their answer and follow their lead then we are speaking to their soul. If we do not ask them and force them to learn what we think they “ought to know” we are really saying “you cannot trust yourself or you inner to compass to lead you”.
