BIG PICTURE STUFF

This is the place to start if you are thinking about homeschooling or unschooling or doing school differently than you are now.

Maybe you are looking ahead to the next phase in your child's education and are wondering what you should do. Well, I won't TELL you exactly what you should do because you are the expert on your family. But I can offer some resources that can help as you are making decisions on what to try.

 

THE WHOLE CHILD

Nurture their physical, mental, and emotional health and learning will come naturally.

DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOUR FAMILY

Of COURSE every kid and family should not 'do school' like every other kid and family.

EVERYTHING IS AN EXPERIMENT

Lots of things you try won't work well. Keep trying anyway, and involve the student in this process.

FOLLOW THEIR INTERESTS AND OFFER CHOICE

Kids will learn so, SO much more when they have buy-in and a sense of agency.
