I’m not the type of person that practices gratitud... but with this, I frequently find myself feeling so incredibly grateful I found this podcast. It has changed so much for me. I cannot begin to express my joy and gratitude at having repaired my relationship with my daughter! I never imagined we could be so close. I was going to a therapist for anxiety... but unschooling, with Pam’s guidance, is helping me so much more than any therapy has. My relationship with my spouse is also better! I just can’t imagine my worldwide has changed so much, and how many positive changes that has brought to my life. Thank you, Pam. Thank you.
I look forward to the weekly podcast and listen to it for encouragement, support, and validation for this alternative lifestyle. Thank you so much for all of the effort and time you and your guests put into each episode.
A Great Help!
I have enjoyed listening to these podcasts as I step my feet into the unschooling world. Lots of great discussions that really reframe my parenting journey.
