"It is so terribly silly what our culture demands from kids and, thus, their carers. While it seems obvious enough to me, it is clear many do not realize that it is not developmentally appropriate for infants to comply with adult standards of behavior – including sitting down and being quiet."
"Life learning is all about authenticity, because nothing is constructed or designed in an attempt at engineering specific outcomes or learning. Instead, everything is an experience to be learned from, and at the same time, everything is just living. The world ceases to be broken down into what’s educational or not, what can be learned from and what can’t. Unschoolers seek to recognize that learning is always happening, no engineering needed, and instead just try to build rich lives, full of resources and fun, interesting people and activities, and trust that that’s all you need for equally rich learning to occur."
