Building a Solid Foundation
You may notice I spend a great deal more time talking about peaceful parenting than unschooling.
That is because I care a great deal more about who the boys become than what they know.
It really doesn't take them much time to figure out where to go if they
want to learn something. They have a wealth of information at their
fingertips- libraries, the internet, networks of people. They have their
entire lives to continue to learn everything that strikes them as
interesting or necessary at the time.
I only have one shot at
helping them build a solid foundation during their childhood that will
carry them on through the rest of their lives. Everything else takes a
backseat to that.
