hi all, looking for a bit of encouragement as i prepare to make the unschooling we do for our 5 yo dd official in the coming year.
i find myself vacillating between thinking--
we're doing just great and i haven't had to put much effort into planning/strewing/guiding my daughter in her educational interests, feeling like this is natural and easy and all i have to do is stay present to her and meet her educational needs and desires as she expresses them,
and waking up in a cold sweat thinking, ohmygod, i need to read up on all the unschooling theory so i can defend my choices to child protective services, i need to be sure that i'm guiding her into literacy in the best possible way, i should be researching waldorf unschooling curriculum, and so on, ad nauseum...
i guess i'm wondering, can it really be as easy as it feels, or do i need to work harder at it?
thanks in advance for your words of wisdom, i've already found so much to support my choices here...
