To Unschoolers, Learning Is As Natural As Breathing

Did you know that a growing percentage of home schoolers are becoming unschoolers? The unschooling movement is founded on the principle that children learn best when they pursue their own natural curiosities and interests. Without bells, schedules, and rules about what to do and when, the knowledge they gain through mindful living and exploration is absorbed more easily and enthusiastically. Learning is a natural, inborn impulse, and the world is rich with lessons to be learned and puzzles to be solved.

Successful unschooling parents know how to stimulate and direct their children's learning impulse. Once you read this book, so will you!

Synopsis:
