If you haven't watched any of Dayna Martin's work, then you are in for a treat!  I am fairly new to unschooling philosophy, but her work seems touch notch to me.  She has a website where she distributes her info ( and she has many short youtube videos on various topics often on the minds of people skeptical of unschooling.  Her passion and ease is contagious!  I highly recommend watching the following episode of the freedomainradio talk show in which she acted as a guest host, fielding the questions of many callers.  Very inspirational!  Also, has great info on peaceful parenting as well, this information is so valuable, I hope you'll check it out!

For those interested, Dayna Martin and family recently did the show Wife Swap.  Their episode airs on ABC next Thursday (April 11).

Just saw her at the Life Rocks conference and heard a "sneak peep" about the show, who knows how they will present it, but I will totally be tuning in!
