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.

A load of drivel.

There are plenty of informative books on this topic but this isn't one of them. It reads like a blog and granted what she had to say is very interesting. I was intrigued to know the story of the author and so I googled her. But I really I wish I hadn't! It's a strange twighlight zone type place. Don't waste your time. Just listen to something by John Holt.

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.

Cleared the concept for an Unschooling father

It was an eye opener for me as a father. My wife came to this conclusion naturally a while ago and wanted us to follow this approach, but I always felt left out and thought we are doing classical homeschooling. Now I know what to do and have already started receiving the love and respect of my children, which I was trying to receive by being an authority.
