Be strong and solid in what your goal is for your family.
Unschooling- not everyone wants to do this! Support educational reform. Vote!
Gentle parenting- set an example. Be true to yourself and model positive parent-child interactions. Everyone is doing the best they know how to do.
Seek support!- Read, attend, form/join a tribe!
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.
