Unschooling your child

Ads By:
Unschooling is the most fluent style of homeschooling. There's no
curriculum and no set boundaries. Many parents feel a little
apprehensive about such freedom. But, even unschooling has certain
guidelines that pass a great method of homeschooling.

Foremost, allow your child to express interests. Let her select the
topic. If she wants to learn about flowers, tell her about the
various flowers, their functions, parts of the flower, rare flowers
etc. But don't go overboard. Let her the freedom to stop when she's had enough.
This process of learning may take a month or a day.
It's up to the child to decide how much she wants to learn.

Expand your child's areas of interests using videos, books, magazines,
puzzles and games. Go to a museum or take her to a library.
Simultaneously, broaden your own interests. The more you know, the
more the child gets to learn.

Notice all opportunities for learning. When in the kitchen, point out
the vitamins in fruits and vegetables. What makes tomatoes red, and
why are leafy vegetables good? If you don't know the answers, don't
worry. Look it up. Lastly, don't worry if the going seems slow. This
is just the way kids learn. Give them time and lots of encouragement
