Many years ago, when Unschooling as a new and exciting concept to me, I wrote a piece that I titled You Might Be an Unschooler If …. Little did I know at the time how popular that piece would become; thirteen years later, it is still my most requested article for homeschooling newsletters.
Much has changed since then. My children are all adults now and I am a grandparent of one granddaughter, with another on the way. My days are no longer filled with researching resources and ideas for my children. Instead, I research resources and ideas for myself! Learning never stops, no matter what your age. If you have the desire, you have the ability to learn. And once you discover that, you are on your way to a lifetime adventure of learning! That is Unschooling 101.
Here are a couple of things that I’ve been unschooling recently:
- Yoga – I am taking a yoga class that meets twice weekly. What a stretch for me, pun intended!
- Plant-based Diet – Since last August I have been eating a mostly plant-based diet, trying out new recipes, and learning new food combinations. I feel great!
What are you currently unschooling?
