Doubts

Doubts

Not long ago I received an email letter from a mother expressing doubts about her ability to homeschool her children. That in itself is nothing unusual, but the letter had a slightly different quality about it; I’d like to share a paragraph with you: “I’ve been reading about homeschooling, and especially unschooling, and it...

Perspective: Use it or Lose it

Perspective: Use it or Lose it

For as long as I can remember, Patrick Farenga has been a good friend and ally, not only to we at Home Education Magazine, but to homeschoolers and unschoolers everywhere. So it was with great dismay that I read the essay this morning at his website, PatFarenga.com. Pat wrote, in part: “It has come...
