Pillars of Unschooling

Welcome to the Six Pillars of Unschooling Series. Here you will find links to posts that outline the foundation for all unschooling practices and decisions. These are the principles on which the unschooling lifestyle is built, everything rests on the implementation of these ideals.

  1. Prioritising relationships
  2. Choosing joy
  3. Trusting our children
  4. Supporting self-expression
