Thanks in advance. So we are relatively new to radical unschooling. REally got into it about 6 months back and it just totally resonated with both me and my husband. Since then we have read everything we could get our hands on and recently attended Dayna Martin's Life Rocks conference which was just SO inspiring. Ds (1.5) has always been "unschooled" WE are hard core attachment parenting and unschooling just seems like the next logical step and we have been ru'ing in an age appropriate way.
So my questions is this? I have two step children 10 and 13 who we only have eow. They are VERY mainstream kids and attend public school. We have been trying to offer them way more freedom while they are here, but in some ways I feel like it is back firing a bit bc they have rules, routines, bedtimes, school, etc with their mom and when they come to stay with us they treat it like it is a free for all....watch TV all day, cant engage themselves in anything wo an adult, seriously don't even brush their teeth. We are trying to "tailor" it bc obviously they are not unschooled kids, but we want to give them freedom. Anyone every been in this situation? How did it work for you?
