    Homeschooling and Unschooling Your Kids

    in Education

    This week on Present Moment Parenting we discuss unschooling and homeschooling your children. My guest, Courtney Ward, is a mother and business owner who uses a combination of unschooling and homeschooling to educate her daughter, Nim. She joins me in a discussion on why she made this choice for her daughter, what homeschooling and unschooling mean, and the benefits and challenges of both approaches.
    If you are homeschooling or unschooling your child and would like some tips and ideas from someone who is doing it successfully, or if you are frustrated with the schooling system and considering one of these approaches, then listen in. This is a fun, enlightening conversation on some quite unconventional ways of educating our kids in a way that empowers them and prepares them for a changing world.

    U-Predict - Unschooling or Schooling - which is better for kids?

    in Spirituality

    Unschooling encourages exploration of activities initiated by the children themselves, believing that the more personal learning is, the more meaningful, well-understood and therefore useful it is to the child. However, critics claim that students are not exposed to a broad enough range of subjects to make it in the world - we'll ask Tarot.  Bring you cards and read along.
