LOVE IT!!!

I am sooo happy I came across this podcast. I am currently unschooling my daughter, but had few questions and concerns ever parent has for their child's future. I learned so much from all the interviews. I have a much better understanding on what unschooling truly means. I just hope I will be as good as I envision it. Thank you Amy for taking your time and making this for us.

The Perfect Introduction to Unschooling

This is an excellent podcast. It is very well put together, and the content is useful and inspiring. I would recommend it to any homeschooling parent, and especially to anyone considering homeschooling. There are lots of misconceptions about unschooling, and this podcast—even if one listens to just the first few episodes—goes a long way to dispelling them.

I am personally convinced, after my second year (formally) homeschooling, and several years educating myself about it, that some form of unschooling is both the easiest and most effective way to assure that one’s children develop their talents and become the healthiest, happiest, and productive people they can be. This podcast very effectively explains to the uninitiated why a conviction like mine is at least plausible.

Well organized, short episodes

Our family enjoyed listening to this podcast during our journey of transitioning to a more relaxed, individualized learning process. While it didn't convert us enough to use the Unschool label, it did help my husband understand my casual approach to early learning and the lack of formal textbooks as they got older. Or, maybe we are Unschoolers since everything our children work on has been chosen by them; As the parents we help direct and expose them to new and interesting things. Either way, we are all happily learning now!
