Each month, members from my private groups will get a BONUS!
A variety of authors, experienced unschoolers – FABULOUS people – will field questions about how kids learn, how we can parent from a more relationship-oriented approach, and/or unschooling in general. Members will be able to ask their questions and get feedback from these experts – all in a more intimate setting. We’ll really get to know each other!
Our Special Guest for May
Pam is the mom of three grown-up unschooled kids: Roya (30), Roxana (27), and Rose (24). She is also an economics and statistics professor and ran the college theater box office for years. Her family lives in Southern California and she is on the Board of Directors of the HomeSchool Association of California.
Pam, and her husband, Cyrus, pulled Roya out of 4th grade, Roxana out of 1st grade, and never sent Rose to school at all. That was 20 years ago, and they spent about a month thinking “unit studies” were a good idea before jumping fully into unschooling. Pam has been a frequent participant in online unschooling discussions and has spoken at unschooling conferences all over the country. She is the owner of the Unschooling California Facebook group and helps moderate Unschooling Mom2Mom.
To Pam, unschooling means creating a peaceful, safe, and loving home life with many opportunities for exploration, invention, investigation, and conversation. It means very involved parents who pay close attention to supporting their children’s interests. It means joy and closeness and a very special, very sweet, parent/child relationship.

Sue’s Past Special Guests
Our first Special Guest was Joyce Fetteroll.
Joyce Fetteroll has been writing about unschooling since 1995, when her son, Danny, was four. Joyce has an engineering degree and worked for a while as a software engineer and technical writer for a communications company. Her husband, Carl, is an adjunct math professor, and is also involved with providing recreational activities for blind children. Danny is now a barista for Starbucks in Chicago and a writer for Sports Blog Nation.
Joyce believes that there are two key elements to successful learning, namely engagement and a rich, supportive environment. For unschooling to work parents need to support that engagement and swirl interesting, fun experiences through children’s lives to give them a taste of the variety the world has to offer.
