Unschooling DIY - Email Guidance

Lots of us need recurring reminders to continue our own journey of learning about how unschooling can work in our homes. We can get distracted so easily by day-to-day life, it's nice to have a reminder pop into our email inboxes every Monday!

The emails are manageable amounts of information for one week with inspiration, action steps, PDFs, brief podcasts and videos.

This also includes the monthly Unschool Strewing Calendar with weekly updates and additional resource links!

All for only $20/month!

Unschooling Guides

After two decades of discussions about unschooling - what works and what doesn't - I decided to create these 15 to 30 page full color mini-magazines to help you conquer the specific fears that are holding you back.

Sometimes it's hard to focus on the bigger picture when you're distracted by a fear. Each of the Guides does a deep dive on a variety of topics that come up over and over when new people ask about unschooling. Topics like:

  • "Am I Doing Enough?"
  • A Typical Unschooling Day
  • Learning to Read
  • Learning Math
  • Learning to Write
  • Coping with Technology
  • What about Socialization?
  • Deschooling
  • Critics and Naysayers
  • Not Back to School
  • Brainstorming Ideas

Each Guide offers coaching insights, journaling pages, resource links. It helps you figure out how to set up your home, live within your community, conquer your own inner battles, and deal with the kids.

Topics include Most Asked Questions from New Unschoolers

Maybe you have a few quick questions you want to ask - and you'd like to talk to someone who has been there! Here's a link to talk with Sue Patterson, an unschooling mom with over 25 years of experience, Her 3 grown unschooled "kids" had a variety of interests... which led them in all sorts of directions. They were a military family, so they moved around the country. This gave her opportunities to meet so many different unschooling families and is happy to share what she discovered.
