The Anti-Schoolers

This is an article about some modern, hip New Yorkers from the New York Times. It is not about me, or even the way we homeschool, but closer maybe than the stereotype of the beaten-down, exhausted, denim jumper wearing homeschooling Mom of silent, obedient stair-steps. Maybe. Except for the exhausted part. And I haven't even in been in a bar since the last millenium, so maybe I'm WAAAAY less hip than I think I am....
Anyway, here's the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/16/garden/16unschool.html?_r=2&ref=garden&oref=slogin&oref=slogin. Enjoy someone else's life for a moment. And who the heck gets free rent in New York City, anyway? Please.

I don't think I've been in a bar- except the one we owned- since I've been a parent, but we're more unschoolers than anything either. We don't force bedtimes, and my kids sleep in, too. I just don't see a reason for fighting about sleep. Or anything. The #1 main rule in our family is to treat each other respectfully, even when angry. Imagine if the whole world followed that rule.
