We are long time homeschoolers. I have a 10 year old that I told my husband when she was 3 that she was gong to be our unschooler. Up until almost 6, she did just that. amazing the things she learned. She had a brief stint in waldorf school before we moved from the area. She did well in the school, but would rather not be there. She loves to read and her life revolves around horses and animals. I have for the past 3 years tried what seems like every.single.curriculum I thought she'd LOVE. She hasn't. She melts down almost daily over school work. I know I need to have her do a math curriculum etc, but Im wondering if I can half her work. Let her school a few days and have "off" a few day sto do her thing. It makes me nervous as she is almost middle school age now.
But she would thrive and our relationship would mend. So, what does real life unschooling look like?
