HEM’s Questions & Answers – July-August 2011
Suited for Unschooling?
My husband and I always planned to unschool when we had kids, but now that I’m a new mother I don’t know if I’m suited for it. Everything I read talks about lively group events and getting out to do things. I am a shy person. I work at home as a fiber artist every spare minute. Philosophically I believe in unschooling but maybe the kind of person I am is unsuited to providing the energized environment my son will need to flourish. How do shy, preoccupied unschooling parents do this? -Maggie
