We are a religious unschooling family and there are things we do because its part of our lives. We go to church, I read bible stories, we discuss what our faith means, who God is to us, etc. Recently my ds said 'I hate church' so Ive stopped making him go. He'll probably want to come on the days when the lads all go to football (thats british for 'soccer'
) practice at the way cool, massive, well
football stadium where the real
footballers here at manchester united play. Ill be honest and say that our 'method' of unschooling doesnt come from a real conviction that this is the best way children learn. We sort of fell into it ourselves. Ive not done tonnes of research on it; its sort of just feels right for us. Its a case of us learning about it as we go and hoping it will work out. As the days go by I am becoming more convinced that it is genuinely the right thing for us. Im personally not opposed to a bit of structure if it is needed so if in the future we feel we need it, we'll go for it. I dont think that would make us not unschoolers. I hate labels too anyway.
Today we met up with our local homeschool group at the park nearby. Its been a glorious day. Sunny and so much fun.
