Learning is Living...Living is Learning

It is apparent to us how natural learning occurs every and every day in many ways.

We simply observe our kids and see the growth, the connections, the imagination, the wonder, the questions, the answers.

We were created to learn but so many of us are inhibited by the forced schooling whether at school or at home that they lose so much of that natural innate desire and ability.

We observe our children and others whom we are around and we really do our best not to judge or to compare. Some things are obvious and attributed to schooling or parenting while others are subtle and definitely all things are individual to the child.

We see the learning and it is awesome. So many people just don't give unschooling a chance--a chance to really see it flourish. We read so many emails from so many different groups that it can become a blur. We come across people who express desire to unschool but can't let go of the mindset, therefore, has been wavering back and forth while the kids are confused to say the least. We wonder why these people want to so badly but hasn't yet deschooled.

Why unschool? Well, we have all the answers for that question but only you may answer it for yourself. This lifestyle of learning is an awesome lifestyle. No inhibitions or forced learning, no scope and sequence, no grade or grade level, no test, no teacher, no school...just real life, real learning, real living, real people doing what they want and learn as they go. It's like we're living a big magical secret.

The enchantment with unschooling just grows and grows as long as you care to notice all the loving and learning happening. It is such a beautiful and wondrous way to live life.

"There is no difference between living and learning-it is impossible and harmful and misleading to think of them as being separate" ~John Holt

True learning-learning that is permanent and useful,that leads to intelligent action and further learning, can arise only out of the experience, interest, and concerns of the learner.
