Unschooling Questions Answered!

10


10 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Aug 11, 2017

from Wikipedia..."Unschooling is an educational method and philosophy that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning. Unschooling students learn through their natural life experiences including play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, internships and work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction. Unschooling encourages exploration of activities initiated by the children themselves, believing that the more personal learning is, the more meaningful, well-understood and therefore useful it is to the child. While courses may occasionally be taken, unschooling questions the usefulness of standard curricula, conventional grading methods, and other features of traditional schooling in the education of each unique child."
We can arrange this service in many different ways, but lets use a basic structure of one initial question answered and two follow up questions answered per service. I can tell you about my own experience raising two boys this way or I could help you figure out how to apply this practice with your own family!

Training & Qualifications


A parent who, with a lot of research, found this philosophy to be very empowering for both myself and my kids. I want to share my experiences with others who are looking for a way to better support the children in their lives.

Availability & Preferences


I am not on the internet constantly, but generally I check messages once a day unless I am away from home.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I provided a six page report that took about two hours to write up, all told. This was an exercise for me to determine if the work I had been doing fo...r the past two years on designing a model for a sustainable community could be of use. Only time will tell. However, it was interesting to see that a number of the pressure points I had seen elsewhere appeared here. It was great working with Amy, and I with them all the best. show more

Amy is so kind to be providing this service to us. My fiance and I are living in a small town with no real access to thrift stores and we live on a fi...xed income. Amy is not just putting clothes on our backs though she takes time and picks out just the right clothes to assure we have access to clothing that makes us feel good about ourselves! Thanks Sis!show more

About Amy Taylor

I'm a creative and somewhat quiet person. I have many interests that overlap with my values of making the world a better place through supporting each other and taking care of the earth, living gentl...y and patiently but also authentically. I've lived in Minnesota for more than 20 years, and have two awesome kids that I parented using unschooling principles, which really changed the way I relate to both them, myself, and everyone in my life! Additionally, I am involved in local theatre and puppetry projects doing a variety of things including sewing, offering hospitality, and doing some performance(usually on stilts). I love living in the city of Minneapolis with all of our parks and social activities, living near the Mississippi River, riding my bike, and being able to visit so many beautiful places in this part of the world. I am hoping to learn how to barter better, and be able to integrate it into my life more, especially in my neighborhood. I'm really good with little kids and I think it would be fun to help new parents out for few hours on a weekly basis, hopefully getting to know people! show more
