What I Think Unschooling is All About: the Podcast

I’ve been having trouble finding the right words to express the ideas swirling around inside my head. But instead of worrying about it, I’ve been heading out the door to run along the sandstone tracks that weave their way through our local bush. I’ve also been reading my library books, and knitting some of Gemma-Rose’s hooded cape. I’ve even watched a movie with my girls. 

Yes, I’ve been doing some different things instead of thinking about words, even though I needed to record something for this week’s podcast.  And then, in the middle of last night, when I was trying to sleep, I had an idea. Why not use some old words?

So for this week’s episode, I tell a story that lies hidden in my archive. It’s about labels and definitions and what I think unschooling is all about. If you haven’t already read my story, I hope you’ll listen!

Here’s the original post in case you’d rather read than listen: What I Think Unschooling is All About

After writing my post, Taking Time Out, I googled the words ‘losing your writing mojo’ and discovered the best thing to do, when the ability to write deserts us, is to head outside for some exercise, get plenty of rest, do some different things for a change, write purely for pleasure and not for a particular reason… I’m doing all that so I suppose those elusive words might reappear very soon!

  1. I like "Stories of a Family Doing our Own Thing" – it would be a good title, too πŸ™‚

      An Almost Unschooling Mom,

      I think a lot of people would relate to the title of Stories of a Family Doing Our Own Thing! I suppose the word 'unschooling' though does help when people are looking for fellow unschoolers. Doing our own thing is a bit vague!

    My daughter and I are going to dive into unschooling as soon as the school year is over. I found myself.at Walmart this morning looking at things to strew with. A lot of people might say you aren't really unschoolers, but those people just like to say that to a lot of people. Do your own thing is a good way of looking at it.

    Sue, I almost didn't make time to listen to this podcast but I'm so glad now that I did. I honestly think this is my favourite one yet. The words resonated with me a great deal or your calm delivery was a pleasure to hear. Thank you once again for sharing your lives with us πŸ™‚

      I am so glad the podcast was okay. Reading was different from speaking spontaneously. I probably made a lot more sense! Thank you so much for listening and for your encouraging words. I do appreciate them!
