I have an unschooling 11yo. And I was wondering if there are others out there.

Is unschooling the older kids just as fun as the younger ones?

It's different... I'm appreciating how much more independent ds is. But he's less easy to please with simple things. Under the age of 10, he'd be happy going to the park or a local museum. Now he feels like he has "been there, done that." Interesting things can't be done as easily, locally, or cheaply. I'm pretty sure that that's just the age, nothing to do with unschooling.

My unschooled teen is now 18. I guess she has graduated, but it doesn't feel any different. Life continues, and she continues to be amazing, busy, and a very creative activist!love.gif

Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)
