THIS is exactly what I cannot make people understand. That HAPPINESS and not money is how I measure success. Money is great and fine and well and who wouldn’t like more of it? But it is not the end all and be all. I’ve often heard “Do what you love and the money will follow”. The question is, how do you find what you love? I believe that unschooling is the answer. Well, yeah, other than 42 of course! (Excellent reference by the way)
Earlier today I was talking to a friend about why we have chosen to unschool Connor.
She knows that Connor’s mum and I between us could wallpaper a room with our degrees, so we are obviously not totally anti-education. She also knows that we want Connor to have a highly successful life and that we are prepared to support him in going to any university that is best suited to him and expect this to be an Ivy League university or Cambridge or Oxford. Connor knows that we expect him to attend university.
So why have we taken this route?
Because we believe that this is the way in which Connor can be provided with the best education possible. We have no particular arguments with what is taught in school – but I have a large one with how it is taught. I am a huge believer in self-directed learning…
