Maybe you have a few questions...
Why take a course on unschooling?
When we first start out on our home educating journey, our minds are still conditioned to want everything all laid out and orderly. Some personalities also really gravitate to this approach.
Our Jumping Into Unschooling course will walk you through basic principles of unschooling as well as how to sidestep the most common obstacles that new unschoolers face.
Isn’t everything I need to know available on Google?
- Yep! It is - but it will take time, and tedious Googling, to comb through it all and find the gems of truth and helpful wisdom.
- There's a big difference between reading things that feel good, and getting practical, useful advice that you can apply to your life in real-time...
- You'll save valuable time, effort, and avoid a boatload of stress by learning with me instead!
- By taking this course, you’ll avoid sifting through the internet for hours upon hours, only to remain overwhelmed and confused.
- Save a TON of time (and grief!), gain confidence, and start enjoying unschooling TODAY - by signing up for the Jumping Into Unschooling course!
Wondering why you should learn from me?
Sue Patterson has been helping families figure out how to learn without the restrictions of school since 1998 - over 20 years! She has a social media following of over 40,000 engaged and curious unschooling parents!
Her own children are grown unschoolers, now 25, 28, and 30 - each with completely different interests and paths - and each really happy with their childhood experiences.
Sue's kids are all successfully navigating their young adulthood with college, higher education, families, careers. (You’ll hear more about them in the course!)
"My family has unique needs, will this course apply to us?"
Yes! Every unschooling family must adjust what we learn to fit our individual family members.
So much of what we believe and think about learning is still seen through the lens of how we were raised and what our own experiences with education and learning were like.
Over time, as families actually live the unschooling experience/lifestyle, you'll find so many layers of conditioning peeling away!
Unschooling principles that you may have initially been unsure about, now seem logical. It's a process, for sure.
Learning about unschooling principles as you’re starting out helps you to have a framework to build and modify as you go.
Here's What's Included:
For each module, you'll learn from a variety of...
- JOURNALING WORKSHEETS
- EXTRA RESOURCE LINKS
We’ll clarify your own reasons for choosing unschooling and why it’s the right fit for your family. Additionally, we’ll identify the building blocks needed to create a strong unschooling foundation.
When it comes to fears, new Unschoolers have plenty! So we have a lot to unpack here. Sometimes we don’t really know why we react or respond the way we do, but it often boils down to fear.
We’ll examine fears we may have about your own abilities or your child’s, fears you may have about the future - even fears that others bring into your world. But more importantly - I'll show you how to overcome these fears!
The Learning...How, What, and Why!
Time to get down to the nitty-gritty about how unschooling works, what deschooling is all about, why unschoolers don’t use curriculum- and what we focus on instead!
The Role of the Unschooling Parent
What are some basic traits that are common with successful unschoolers? And how can you develop them? We’ll identify ways to parent that can strengthen your connections with the kids, increase the joy in your homes, and create a rich learning environment for your family.
Wait, there's more? YES!
