Homeschooling Dads

From Mary Nix’s interview with Barb Lundgren, long-time Texas unschooler and founder of the international Rethinking Education conference, in the July/August issue:

“Over the last few years I have seen an exciting, noticeable change in the hundreds of fathers that attend.  Where I used to encounter much anxiety, stress and fear of child-led learning, I now commonly see confidence, joy and even exuberance in embracing the uniqueness of self and children.  More and more, parents are acknowledging the innate drives that exist in themselves and in each of us for freedom of choice, expression and action.  What a difference!  I can even get teary at my conference as I watch clusters of men talking and laughing together, running off to participate in the next  Dad’s discussion group.”
