This box set brings together the best of both worlds: diving deep into the principles of unschooling and seeing how they play out in everyday situations.
It is for every parent who is contemplating unschooling, or has taken the leap and is thinking, now what? What does day-to-day life look like in an unschooling family? How can I create a thriving unschooling environment in my home, with my family?
Pam Laricchia and her family have been unschooling for more than a dozen years. Her three children are now young adults and she's definitely experienced the ups and downs of life over the years. She shares her understanding of unschooling and her family's experiences through her books to help fellow travelers on their unschooling journeys.
She shares not only what she's found helpful along the way, but also why. Because understanding the perspective and principles behind the unschooling lifestyle will help you make the every day choices that will bring you closer to the parent you want to be. And that is a lifelong journey.
This box set contains three books:

Pam discusses the four characteristics that have had the most positive impact on their unschooling lifestyle: curiosity, patience, strong relationships, and trust.
