The Catholic Radical Unschool Cheese and other stories

After a 2 month break, I’m back with a new podcast episode!

Yes, this morning, I plugged the mic into my computer and started talking. I had lots to share!

In episode 87, I answer the following questions:

  • What is unschooling?
  • Why is unschooling different from other methods of homeschooling? Could it not be a method at all?
  • Should we make kids do things they don’t want to do? Would that be good for them?
  • Is there such a thing as providing a too happy life for our kids? Should we get them used to the fact that life in the bigger world won’t always be happy?
  • Are we easily distracted? Have most of us lost our ability to focus and do deep work?
  • Can we survive without social media? Do we need it if we have something we want to share with the world?
  • Can series such as Downton Abbey lead to some wonderful learning experiences?
  • Are quiet times valuable and even essential?
  • What is The Catholic Radical Unschool Cheese?
  • Can unschooling kids work hard?
  • Is a parent’s attitude important when it comes to chores and other mundane tasks?
  • What have my children been doing recently?

    Thank You Sue for Your wonderful podcast above. I am in my 12 year of homeschooling. I started out similar to how you did, Charlotte Mason, Unit Studies, Classical Homeschooling. What I found just this year was how much better he responds to Unschooling. Thank you again for your insight
