Unschooling requires much more from you. You need to be doing interesting things, bringing interesting things and opportunities into your life, exploring ideas and experiences with your child, responding to him, and learning with him. Some people already live those kinds of lives, so unschooling happens naturally, but if you don't, then unschooling will take a good deal more effort.
