Unparenting, Unschooling and other Unimpressive ideas

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

Yep, I’m unschooling. It was never my intention but a combination of crisis, burnout and indecision led me here. At first, I was terrified!  My children are falling behind in school! Other kids their age are at school all day and mine are building forts and running wild….
Yesterday, when the Pediatritian asked my daughter if she was in kindergarten or first grade she answered, I don’t know.
“Kindergarten” I clarified. “What’s your favorite subject?” He asked
“Coloring.” She replied
I guess it’s official now…she’s six and doesn’t even know what kindergarten is and instead of learning to read, she is holding crayons and coloring with oblivion.
