In my opinion, there are many variations of unschooling as there are homeschooling approaches. Sometimes I have found myself comparing our approach of unschooling to those who frequently post on unschooling.com (which I enjoy) and think ....... hmmmmm, that's not quite my interpretation of unschooling. In times of doubt I re-read my underlined Holt books, peruse favorite articles, minimize frequency on unschooling sights and reflect on how I think my children and our family will grow and learn best. Sooooo....where am I going with this.........I guess, I too, have felt on occasion that without a book tossed their (older kids)way they won't learn alll they need to know with little ones romping about. It's in those times I reflect (by doing the above) the most and always arrive at the same place.....unschooling, as WE define it. By the way, Barbara, I love ........."live what you love....".
