I have a guest poster at my other blog The Mahogany Way. She will talk about her case for radical unschooling.
Her name is Heather and she can be found at Swiss Army Wife

Life at Home.
Unschooling in our home with a 5yr old, and a 2.5yr old.
There is always LOTS of free play. We play with blocks, baby dolls, doll houses, the Ariel mermaid salon set. There is painting, and drawing.
There is also lots of TV, and computer play. There was a time when I let someone else convince me that TV was not good for my children. Hogwash! They learn from EVERYTHING! They have picked up Spanish from Dora, and Diego.
Often throughout the day you can hear them counting in Spanish, and speaking what they have picked up.
Some of the girls favorite sites.
We don’t have a sandbox at the moment, but we do have rice, flour, dry beans, and cornmeal. The girls love to make their footprints with the flour and cornmeal. They use cups, spoons, bowls, pots and pans to pour and play with.
No one telling us when to eat, how much of what we can eat or drink. Recess is always in session, and the best part, we learn in everything we do.
I love being able to watch my kids grow and learn in everything they do.
Here at home they are free to explore, and learn at their own pace.
