When people first come to Unschooling they have often different expectations of what it really looks like.They expect children to pick up text books that interest them and begin educating themselves in a way that resembles how kids are forced to learn in schools. These parents are often confused as to what natural learning is all about. They begin to force, reward, coerce and fear grows. Through Unschooling, kids learn through what they are interested in. Their interests are the nucleus of their learning. They learn from everything they explore, create and experience. When a parent limits media out of fear, children have their learning tools stripped of them. Their world becomes smaller. As Unschooling parents, we want to give our children an enormous world to learn and grow from. We want to offer them a buffet of every food imaginable! It is through true choice that children find who they really are and what their passions are.
