Radical Unschooling: A Revolution Has Begun

Radical Unschooling is a progressive parenting philosophy, which includes children learning at home.

Radical Unschooling philosophy focuses on trust of a child's innate ability to learn without coercion and invites children to explore their passions. The parent's role is to facilitate their interests and curiosity. Radical Unschooling - the book - focuses also on the evolutionary aspect of parenting and human consciousness....

Publisher's Summary

Radical Unschooling is a progressive parenting philosophy, which includes children learning at home. It is different from homeschooling in that children are not forced to follow curriculum lessons and tests. Radical Unschooling philosophy focuses on trust of a child's innate ability to learn without coercion and invites children to explore their passions. The parent's role is to facilitate their interests and curiosity. Radical Unschooling - the book - focuses also on the evolutionary aspect of parenting and human consciousness. We are parenting and educating our children today to succeed in a joyful, productive life by following their passions, not someone else's agenda.

The main presentations are:

  • School is only one of many choices for our children in our technologically advanced world
  • Forced learning isn't effective and causes more damage than formerly thought
  • Respecting a child's choice and autonomy is an evolution of understanding and birth right of every human
  • Learning and life are not separate. Learning is pleasurable if it is not forced on us
  • Separating life into subjects isn't necessary or natural
  • Humans learn from all that they do and experience in life, not just what our culture deems ''educational''

The main focus of parenting today is obedience and meeting the needs of the parent. This has to change if we want our children to live in a peaceful world. Moreover, Radical Unschooling is just radical enough to herald a wake up call to our culture because of the truth the philosophy speaks.

    Story
    "Incredible!"

    I loved every minute of this audiobook. The concepts presented really spoke to my instincts as a parent and what I want for my children. I love the way that the author follows the same "New Thought" philosophies that I live by. Excellent, excellent book. I only wish it was longer- though the material was covered very thoroughly, I didn't want it to end.

    Thank you, Dana, for this life-changing book.

    If you could sum up Radical Unschooling in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like to listen to this book to remind me to be on my child's side.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator sounded like a robot. She read like the GPS in my car.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, you can drop it and pick it up again anywhere in the book, and that's not a bad thing.


    Any additional comments?

    She's got good ideas, and I've listened to this multiple times while I'm working, but the narrator is not good at all.
