Are you ready for a complete shift in life philosophy? To respect your children as the people they are rather than concerning yourself with what they will become? Do you mean it when you say that you will be happy as long as your children are happy- no matter what? These only sound cliche if you aren’t able to recognize that children are capable of directing their own lives. As unschoolers and gentle parents we understand and live this. Humans Being will discuss facets of unschooling and gentle parenting as well as how they relate and work in our family and others. We’ll talk about a variety of unschooling philosophies, literature, and media as well as hearing from unschoolers all over the world who will share their experiences.

    Great Podcast! I think you covered things well.

    I’d be interested in hearing the podcast idea you mentioned about dealing with traditional/mainstream parents and reconciling differences or if that’s even possible — I’m facing that now in my life, so some insight from another whole-lifer would be nice 🙂

    I just listened to your podcast and really enjoyed it! Thank you so much it was llike you were speaking directly to me. We are fairly new to the idea of unschooling and just recently started parenting this way. It is challenging at times especially with bedtime (or lack there of :-), but I feel like such a better parent than when I was forcing my kids to bed and restricting food! Thanks again for all of the great advice!
