Radical Unschooling: Raising rebels and free-thinkers.
In these times, when the act of thinking for oneself is revolutionary, we have the opportunity to analyze whether the educational choices we have previously made for our children are truly serving them.
Or serving a larger agenda.
Remember: the system was NOT designed to build creative, free-thinking human beings. It was designed to do the opposite: churn out obedient worker bees, good at taking orders, but not so good at thinking for themselves.
My vote is for unschooling, and REAL education.
What does unschooling look like?
– Acquiring reading skills overnight
– Learning seven years of typical school math in 20 hours
– Cultivating creativity and finding one’s authentic voice
– A child easily finding their true path and vocations in life
– Independent, self-possessed children
– Kids not needing to go through the typical “teenage rebellion” that is more a product of being forced to go to jail every day, where they need to ask permission to go to the bathroom
In today’s episode, I interview Dayna Martin, who is the author of Radical Unschooling and Raising Rebels. She is an author, speaker and advocate on the topic of unschooling.
We discuss all of this, and also extend the conversation into how having a natural, sovereign birth also sets both parents and children up to better follow their own truth in life and education, rather than a path that is spoon-fed to them.
This is an extremely empowering and liberating episode. If you have any questions or doubts about sending your child to public schools, especially with what it happening right now in these environments, this episode is for you.
Dayna is an advocate, speaker, educator, and author of three books about parenting and homeschooling. Dayna been featured on The Dr. Phil Show, CNN, Nightline, Fox News, 60 Minutes and the Bethenny Show.
She was used as an informational resource for Homeschooling stories on the Discovery Channel, The Today Show and Our America on the OWN Network and the Oprah Winfrey Show.
She travels the world helping families change their lives by changing their parenting paradigm to bring more peace and connection to their lives with their children. Dayna and is a featured speaker at the major parenting and education conferences worldwide.
