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.

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.

Can't Deal!

This author will let you know very clearly that if you do not choose to do life with your children HER WAY - (attachment parenting, zero discipline, kids in charge) than you are completely WRONG, missing out on life and are harming your kids. It's so nauseating I had to turn it OFF! There are ALL colors of the rainbow when it comes to Unschooling and I guess the title of the book is spot on....this is RADICAL. The performance of the book is very robotic like. Didn't like it.

A good book to expend your unschooling knowledge

This is a radical book. I find it hard to agree with all the concept of radical unschooling. I would have liked the author to give more examples. Each concept is often backed by only one example while I would have appreciated the examples of several families.
