Radical unschooling children don’t necessarily brush their teeth, or shower and if they want to exist on an exclusive diet of coca cola and donuts, well, that’s up to them.
Or so the stories go.
And for some people that might not sound a very attractive way of life at all.
What if we
- accept our children with all their gifts and quirks and failings…
- treat them with trust and respect, and instantly forgive…
- love them just as they are, no strings attached?
What if we love as we’d like to be loved ourselves?
We’d be loving unconditionally.
And isn’t that a rather radical thing to do?
So how do we live radically? Don’t worry about other people’s stories (which might not even be true).
