I had a friend email me recently asking about how we homeschool our kids. Long story short, well, short story short, we don’t. We unschool, and there’s a world of difference between the two. I sent him this in response:
Here’s what you and your wife need to do:
Step 1: Read this page under “Unschooling”.
Step 2: Read every chapter of Section 4 of my book.
Step 3: Buy this book and read it.
Step 4: Buy this book and read it.
Step 5: Read this page and all hyperlinks.
Step 6: Join this Facebook group for (awesome) unschooling support.
Any questions, let me know.
That’s it. That will get anyone started on their unschooling journey. This particular friend has older kids that have been and are currently in school, but he’s planning on starting this with his 5 year old. I hope he soon brings all of his willing kids home for good. Of course, it doesn’t end here. There’s plenty more out there to research as you will have hundreds of questions. Step 6 will lead you to all sorts of resources on the Internet.
