A beautiful book of the author's personal journey of discovery of the alternatives to what we normally call 'education'. Not as exhaustive and thorough as Robin Grille's 'Parenting for a Peaceful World', but for me its true value lies in its authenticity. She has lived, and still lives it. ...more

I wanted to like this book I really did. And I like the message in it. But I also found it lacking. I don’t think it goes into enough detail for people and if this was the first book you read that tackles this subject I think you might be frustrated as there’s so little insight into HOW you might parent in a peaceful way and in connection with your children.

So far this is a very dissapointing book. While I thoroughly support the premise, I am finding the book to be mostly shallow and lacking of any significant depth. It reads more like a stream of consciousness without taking the time to develop any of the thoughts beyond a thought. This really could be a great addition to the parenting literature, but I am finding it lacking in any real and meaningful implications.

Read through twice to get myself to think more. This book is Improving my parenting and my relationship with my child. An essential book to read for jumping into unschooling. This woman is also a great speaker!
