Francette’s Talk: R U Parenting?
Unschooling is fundamentally an educational philosophy based on children learning by living in the “real” world as opposed to the artificial environment of school, or school at home. The rest of the child’s unschooled life often looks like any other schooled child’s life minus the school work. Radical unschooling approaches the entire life of a child from the radical perspective that children live consensually with their parents. Their lives look very different from the lives of other children. It is often misconstrued that parents become less involved in the child’s life, but nothing could be further from the truth. Francette will discuss the joys and challenges associated with parenting the unschooled child.
Francette Fey ~ Living with her most amazing 10 year old daughter in South East Michigan, Francette has found her home. Home had always seemed elusive until the birth of her only child. The baby arrived with a gift: the key needed to free what was in her mother’s heart. Through her daughter, Francette discovered she could be at home in her own skin. She very much wants to be a “full time” stay at home mom, but current circumstances require that she enjoy being an on-campus and online instructor/facilitator at the local University and College. Although Francette works as an academic, she and her daughter have only known the free and happy lives of unschoolers.
