Why I'm an Unschooling Mom

..from Natural Living.

The first bit of the story is remarkably similar to my own progression from working-outside-the-home mum through to a working mum of an entirely different sort ie: someone who would be on hand to provide resources, answer questions and offer suggestions to my children, whilst they learnt according to their ability and aptitudes.

Whilst I love the article, the part that says:
"A child who is surrounded by great literature and read to by his parents will naturally develop a love for reading."

isn't demonstrated in my ds's case at all! He had loads of 'great literature' read to him and loved it until he turned about 10/11 and has never had any interest in reading or hearing stories read since - although this may have been because he was schooled up to that time....
