Sleep Freedom: Letting Kids Find Their Own Sleep Pattern

Thu, 15 Sep 2011 15:09:57 +0000

Editors Note: As Stephanie Waldron points out in this article, it’s important for people (and yes, people includes children), to find their own natural sleep rhythym. As parents we can help our kids with that, instead of forcing a schedule on them. Instead of thinking about how to get kids to sleep,  find ways to [...]

My Daughter, The Artist

Sat, 10 Sep 2011 20:50:58 +0000

I wanted to share a drawing my daughter did the other day. She gets a lot of enjoyment from drawing and she’s been doing it on and off for a few years. Sometimes she’ll draw a lot, other times she’ll leave it alone for a while while she’s exploring other things. But make no mistake…she’s [...]

Trusting Your Child

Wed, 07 Sep 2011 05:13:00 +0000

Natural Parenting: Trusting your childby Ela Forest It is natural to have fear for our children’s well-being, but there is no reason not to trust children to know their own limits. Everybody knows their limits much better than those around them. I know exactly how high I can jump, to what shelf I can reach [...]

Ripley’s Believe It Or Not (Orlando)

Wed, 31 Aug 2011 18:10:11 +0000

Originally posted June 2009 We recently spent the day checking at the weird and wacky stuff at the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Odditorium in Orlando. My husband & I had been to the one in Atlantic City, but my kids have never been there. The building was created to look as if it were [...]

Snapshot Of An Unschooling Family

Tue, 30 Aug 2011 15:42:14 +0000

Written by Sylvia Toyama I was asked by a friend who is relatively new to the idea of unschooling, “You don’t do any instruction? What do you do?” I replied that we live full lives, with our kids, and that we talk a lot. When asked about math or history, I replied that those topics [...]

Meeting Your Child’s Needs

Sun, 28 Aug 2011 05:22:42 +0000

Someone shared Jan Hunt‘s gardener metaphor on an unschooling list a while back and I wanted to share it here for anyone who may not have read it. It’s message is meeting your child’s underlying needs with patience and trust. “Imagine for a moment that you are visiting a plant nursery. You hear a commotion [...]

A Free Child Is A Happy Child

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 22:54:37 +0000

“There is, of course, this matter of being afraid to give freedom to young children. I believe they have that within themselves which makes it possible for them to meet the world and life and interpret it more nearly aright than can we. They carry with them that inheritance of faith and imagination undimmed; and [...]

Unschooling Questions

Tue, 23 Aug 2011 21:53:33 +0000

I’ve had this saved for a while in my documents. These were questions someone asked Joyce Fetteroll on an unschooling info list. Can a unschooler go to college? Can a schooler go to college? Not all of them do. Not all of them can. Not all of them want to. I think it’s clearer to state that [...]
