I know this will come as a shock to a lot of people who actually understand how we have homeschooled for the past 9years. It came as a shock to me, hence the new intense need for copious amounts of caffeinated coffee.
This is not my choice in the sense that as the parent I just up and decided that we were going to totally go from an unschooling family to a Waldorf inspired, relaxed, eclectic homeschooling family. It was a request from our older girls coupled with a realization about our youngest 3 that has brought us to this new season.
I have worked through the mourning process and it is what it is. My parenting won’t change. Of all the things in my life that were positively influenced by unschooling it was my parenting that grew the most . Still gentle, still respectful, still growing in that everyday.
Monday begins the new adventure.
I am certain I will need lots of coffee.
Stay tuned for our new adventures.
