The Amazing Freedoms of Unschooling

I’m strongly considering homeschooling my daughter, and I’m very interested in the unschooling style for several reasons. With unschooling, your child’s interests and learning style play an integral role in their education. Unschooling doesn’t rely heavily on structured boxed curriculum or formalized lesson plans. Instead, kids in this setting would generally learn from real-world experiences and life lessons from their parents, diverse resources and extended family members. For example, the unschooling approach would let kids learn history from living books and older generations of family members. If your child is an active and visual learner, it would bore him to tears to read dry textbooks for hours. Here are some benefits of unschooling.

Kids Learn to Think Critically

If we know anything about the school system, it’s that this system does not favor independent thinking. You’re asked to parrot information without being trained to investigate this information to see if it’s true. Then you’re asked to pass a bunch of standardized tests that include information which you probably will not use in the real world. With unschooling, you’re free from the groupthink mentality and you can have a mind of your own.

Kids Can Go Deeper into the Topics They Enjoy

When I was in high school, I loved creative writing and history. But because of the way the school system is structured, I was not allowed to go deeper into those subjects because there were only so many hours in the school day. The cool thing about unschooling is that your child can go as deep and as long as they like with certain topics. This makes learning fun and the kids are more likely to retain what they learn.

Parents Can Teach More Life Skills

One flaw about traditional schooling is that the students do not learn important life skills such as sewing, proper money management, cooking skills, how to relate to the opposite sex in healthy ways, how to fix things around the house, and how to care for babies and toddlers. When you use the unschooling method, you can have a healthy balance between academics and life skills.

Freedom and Flexibility

I want my daughter to have freedom and flexibility in her childhood. I don’t like the fact that our politicians, education experts, and other industry leaders push for two and three-year-olds towards early childhood education at institutions. It’s as if they want to raise our children from the time they are toddlers until they turn 18. Toddlers should be playing, making friends, reading fun books, and enjoying their parents. They should not be subjected to workbooks and writing drills as if they were in first grade. With unschooling, my daughter can be a kid and learn as she does life with her family.

Not Every Child Learns the Same Way

The problem with traditional schooling is that it isn’t tailored to every child’s learning style. Parents often know how their children learn and retain information, and they sometimes clash with teachers and school administrators about the best ways to educate their children. The benefit of unschooling is that you can tailor your instruction that best meets your child’s needs without feeling intimidated or guilty.

Unschooling Helps with Career Exploration

When you use the unschooling method, your child can explore certain career options without the propaganda of the education industry or the federal government. Your child won’t be told by a guidance counselor that it is obsolete for him to become a librarian and that he should choose engineering even if he hates the subject. In traditional schools, we’re trained to work for someone else but not to create our own strategies for financial stability through entrepreneurship and investing. In addition, traditional schools would have us believe that college is the answer when it doesn’t work for everyone. In fact, there are many college graduates who are saddled with debt and who are not employed in the fields they studied for.

You Take Back Your Relationship with Your Children

Recently, I became aware of the fact that when kids are in school, they’re raised by people other than you. In addition, teachers have more influence over your children than you even if what they are taught does not reflect your values. This is one of my main reasons for unschooling. I want to be the main influence in my daughter’s life and build a solid relationship with her.

In conclusion, unschooling is a great way to give your child a unique education

 and it keeps the family grounded.

  1. The core of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really settle very well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do nicely to fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will undoubtedly be impressed.

  2. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
