What if instead, you did some of those things your children have been wanting to do for ages… you know, all that fun stuff that usually has to wait until all the serious stuff has been completed… the stuff there’s never time for?
What if you and your children read a funny book aloud… and watched an entertaining movie… and sang along to some upbeat music… and strolled down to the park to feed the ducks… or scooted swiftly around the lake… and made a huge colourful painting mess… or pricked a few fingers learning how to sew… and played a challenging computer game and an old-fashioned board game… and baked some chocolate muffins… and explored a website together… or visited the library and borrowed a huge stack of books… and curled up somewhere quiet to read them… and talked about anything and everything… and laughed loudly… and hugged tightly… and just spent the day together doing what everyone enjoys best?
Wouldn’t that be a fantastic day?
And what if you did it all over again the next day and the next, and the next?
Would you and your children look forward to each day?
Would your children be eager to learn?
Would they begin to lead the way?
Would they be unschooling?
