Unschooling is a contact sport! We spend time together, exploring our interests, as opposed to dictating our daughters’ interests.
Sometimes I want to run out of my house and yell out to every parent that sends their kids to school to “STOP! STOP RIGHT NOW! YOU’RE MESSING IT ALL UP.”
Homeschooling isn't for every teenager, but if sitting in a classroom for eight hours a day with people who think you're a freak makes you want to stab yourself in the neck with a fork? Do it.

When we visited our county museum, my mom and I were asked if we were “part of the pioneer exhibit.” Long before America gawked at the Duggers’ quaint dresses and dated hair on TLC, I lived in a family freak show.
