Relaxed homeschooling Pt. 1
I used to call myself a wanna-be unschooler but I think at heart I am more of a relaxed homeschooler. I require my kids to learn math on a daily basis and I think that negates me from ever being trendy enough to be an unschooler.
What does our relaxed home education look like? A little bit of everything. I prefer not to use textbooks, believing that textbooks were designed for schools. I'm a big proponent of not duplicating a school environment in our home. We don't say the pledge every morning and we don't line up in desks. I'm not much for curriculums. They scare me. If there's a fun or hands on way to learn a vital life skill or piece of knowledge, I want to find it and incorporate it.
Ever since I graduated from school, I have loved learning. I don't want our children to have to wait that long.
