Alot of people ask me how the concept of unschooling or natural learning works and often I find it hard to give a consise answer. I know some people think I'm just letting the kids run wild and I'm not educating them properly. And since most people
(myself included) have had the experience of being schooled they don't have the experience of learning naturally to relate to.
