Unschooling isn’t and can’t be a solution for many of the problems of being young, or growing up in an anxious and confused world, or in a society that generally has no use for young people.
But at least homeschooling doesn’t make those problems worse.
–John Holt in Growing Without Schooling Issue #15
So true. I find I need to remind myself of this frequently, when my oldest is all furrowed brows and difficult moods. Homeschooling is a refuge she doesn’t even realize she has, and how her struggles would so likely be amplified in a different setting.
our oldest two seem so alike…it was a wonder to see you all this week!
