How can the US be great when it coerces its children into conformity - arbitrary slots where individuals stretch to be graded like standardized meat, and if they don't fit the mold, they are labeled and maligned, essentially for life?
As the parent of an unschooler, my priority is to facilitate the intrinsically driven passions of my child in connection and partnership. The rabbit holes he explores are often nothing like I would expect a typical child in school to experience. Perhaps that is because children are not typical, only standardization tries to coerce them to be so. Facilitating my child on his individual journey involves trusting that his expression is authentic and necessary, whatever form it takes.
