“You just have to be devoted to your children…” I love this summary of what you need to unschool your kids; devotion to them. This is a nice, short video that’s a good introduction to unschooling.
I totally agree that all you really need to unschool is devotion. And this devotion is joyful and fun and fulfilling for a mother and/or father. It’s not something that feels enormously self-sacrificing.
Although I would like a little more time to pursue my own interests uninterrupted for instance I am really struggling to find time to do an ‘Ancient Greeks’ Coursera course at the moment because I am too tired to do it at the end of the day, on balance this devotion is an uplifting and very satisfying feeling.
I hope after watching this movie, if you’re on the fence about unschooling, this may give you the necessary nudge in the right direction to give it a try remembering that unschooling is a spectrum and you might choose to be on the more ‘conservative’ end to begin with (ie using some textbooks or curricula eg for Maths) whilst trying to always be as child-led as possible. Good luck!
