Introductions  - 
 
Bonjour, I'm Ruth - mum to Marlo (18 months) I was a member of the old group. I'm currently travelling round Europe in our van with my husband Steve, Marlo and my little dog. We are trying to find some land to begin growing our roots. When I joined LL I was just starting to dream of buying some land and creating a foresty unschool learning space...its a massive journey but it feels within reach now and getting closer every day ! I am not online much but will need to pick your brains as things develop
Lots of love
Ruthy xx

Emotional Health and the Power of Choice, or Why Kids Should be Able to Avoid Things
I've mentioned previously in passing that I think one of the benefits of unschooling is in the space it gives people to learn to handle things at their own pace. But I don't think I've ever said more on the subject than that. So here's me saying more. I thi...

Does school have to happen in a building? Or even in a home? Can there be school without textbooks, walls, and formally trained teachers?  Does education have to planned for you or can you plan it for yourself? What if the curriculum you followed was written just for you, influenced by your curiosities and interests?  What if you could "hack" your own education? Would you?

Hello all, I have a few questions I'm hoping ya'll can help me with.

Right now my daughter is going to a public virtual school, but ISTEP starts next semester and just..no.  No.  So we're going to be making the fully homeschooled/unschooling jump probably in December.  I'm looking up the legalities and technicalities and whatnot.  Thankfully I live in a state (Indiana) that has very lax laws concerning homeschooling, but I'm reading that they still want you to log attendance and keep a transcript.  How does that work with unschooling?  Proving they're doing grade appropriate things.  I'm probably overthinking it, but I tend to worry about things.  Any suggestions/help/answers are very much appreciated <3

Here in South Carolina we belong to an accountability group that is unschool friendly. So at the end of the school year I click a button on a website that says our kids attended school a full year (I think it's around 180 days). We are also require to keep a portfolio. No one ever checks though. Still what I'm going to do is create a blog or page of some kind where I can post what we did a particular day, just in case.

Homeschoolers Have Social Lives, Too
In reality, though, home-schoolers are out in the world — attending specialized classes, taking field trips, going to proms and just hanging out with other kids. Many of the activities are organized through loosely knit groups of home-school parents who want to make sure their children get a well-rounded experience in addition to an education tailored specifically for them.
