Two Notes from me in one week! WooHoo!
This time, I want to focus on the teen years. Parents worry that they're making a mistake or somehow putting their own child at a disadvantage if they don't make their teens go to school. But staying somewhere that clearly isn't working seems like a much bigger risk in the long run... on so many levels.
Even if your kids are young, I think you'll benefit from this newsletter. You can clear up worries way before it's time. We all have little ideas..."But what about...?"
All of society wants us to dread these teen years. Yet for me - and many other unschooling parents - this wasn't our experience at all. We loved raising teenagers! Our teens were funny, and thoughtful, and curious. They could hold their own in conversations asking really good important questions about Life.
So if you have a teen that is not enjoying their high school or middle school experience, I hope you'll consider some other options for them. You can read about 75 teens who didn't go to school in my book, Homeschooled Teens, or you can watch the upcoming live stream interview I'm doing for Lainie Liberti's show, For the Love of Learning. I'm talking with three grown unschooled young women who will be reflecting on what their life was like as a teen and what they're doing now. You can see the specifics below.
As always, if you need a little 1:1 help, just hop onto my calendar from the website.
