What is Unschooling?

Unschooling is schooling without walls, borders, road blocks, or hindrances. It is a form of homeschooling that encourages children to learn through natural curiosity and their innate desire to discover the unknown.

Many people have heard of homeschooling, but unschooling is still a relatively unheard of term. It has been made popular as of late by people such as Dayna Martin and Sandra Dodd.

Unschoolers have the liberty to learn from their environment and to learn from nature. If the unschooled child has a profound interest in Greek mythology, that child can go out and find every resource he or she possibly can on the subject. They can spend all day, or even all month, studying Greek mythology. They do not have to worry about putting down their books on myth to work on math worksheets.

This is not to say that the unschooler is not a well-rounded and well-educated child. When a child is left to explore at his or her own free will, you will be surprised at how much they will absorb. Unschoolers tend to always test at the same level or above their peers when evaluated by the states every year. They are still learning, just not in the same manner as public school or traditional homeschooled children learn.

Unschooling is NOT Lazy Parenting

Okay, so you're probably thinking that unschooling is the ultimate way to be a lazy parent. This is absolutely false. In fact, the majority of unschooling parents actually do spend just as much preparing and planning as the average homeschooling parent.

Instead of relying on curriculum for their children's educations, unschooling parents use what is called "strewing". Strewing is where the parent leaves out little trinkets to peek their child's interest. For example, if your toddler is very interested in cars, you might would bring out a toddler-acceptable model car for them to build. While the child is working on constructing the model car, the you could go over the various basic parts of the car, explain to the child how a car runs, a basic history of cars, etc..

Unschooling Babies and Toddlers

One of the wonderful things about unschooling is that it starts from birth. Children are constantly growing and learning, especially in the early stages of life.

Babies and toddlers will need more help in their unschooling, but it is well worth it to begin working with them and discovering their interests early on in their lives.

With my 2 year-old son, his interests right now are trains, cars, magnets, dancing, and letters. He is also a voracious eater, so I try to include activities that involve the preparation of food. We play music throughout the day and take moments in between chores and daily activities to dance around and get some of the wiggles we've built up through the day out.

With my 1 year-old daughter, her interests include: dancing, singing (she loves listening to operas), various art mediums, playing dress up, and trying new foods. She and I enjoy watching the occasional musical - her current favorite being The Phantom of the Opera. Also, when she and my son are playing dress up, I try to teach them their colors, matching, how to properly dress, etc..

Typically the kids, my husband, and I will all read children's books a couple of times a day. My son's favorite books are pretty much any Dr. Seuss book, while my daughter loves Curious George. We also enjoy going to our local library once a week and stocking up on enough picture and chapter books to last us the entire week.

If you don't know what your child's interests are, just watch him or her for a day. Play music, sing, and dance. Do some finger painting or play with homemade play dough. Their interests are very clear very early in life, you just have to watch and learn from them.

Fun Unschooling Ideas for Babies

  • Go for a walk outside. Let your baby crawl or roll around in the grass and leaves. If you have any pets, let them touch their fur. Let your baby feel the grass in his or her fingers. Taking your baby outside on a regular basis will help them to understand the seasons and hot & cold temperatures.
  • Depth perception. Fill a small bowl with room temperature water. Place a few water-safe toys inside of the bowl. Help your baby try to get their toys out of the water. It is best to do this activity when the baby is already able to sit up on his or her own.
  • Talk to your baby regularly. Children learn their language skills from you. If you never talk to them, it can delay their language skills.
  • Read to your baby. This sounds silly to some people, but children learn how to speak and communicate from you. Reading to them helps stimulate their vocabulary and helps them to learn how to form words.
  • Sing and play music. Studies have shown that music helps babies develop, even as early as in the womb. Sing and play a variety of music, preferably classical, folk, and softer music.

Fun Unschooling Ideas for Toddlers

  • Make homemade playdough and let the child have fun pulling it apart and piecing it back together again.
  • Learn a song in a foreign language and sing it for a day or even a week.
  • Search through the house for geometrical shapes. Have your toddler find everything that is shaped like a circle, a square, etc..
  • Get out some of your herbs and spices and have your toddler touch, smell, and even taste (if appropriate) the herbs. Explain to them each herb and what it's used for. Once this is done, blindfold them (if they approve) and have them try to figure out which herb is which through their senses of taste, touch, and smell.
  • Each month, pick a country to learn about. Learn about the food, culture, and dress of the natives. Cook something that is native to that country. Play music that is native to that country.
  • Build a fort or tent inside your house somewhere. Play inside of it with your child and let them play on their own. Allow their imaginations to soar as they explore this new mysterious place.
  • Leave letters and numbers lying around so that your toddler (babies, too!) can be learning about the shape of letters and numbers. Invest in foam letters and numbers so that your child can feel the shape of the object. Also, invest in magnetic numbers and letters so that you child can study them on the fridge while you're cleaning or cooking.
  • Take a farm tour so that your child can learn about where his or her food comes from, what sounds animals make, what food looks like when it's on the plant still, etc..
  • Walk down your neighborhood with your child and listen for sounds. When you hear a dog bark, tell your child that it is a dog that is barking. When wind blows through their hair, tell them about the wind. When they find a leaf, tell them all about leaves and that they come from trees.

Just Go With It

Unschooling doesn't have to be ridiculously complicated, especially not with babies and toddlers. Just follow their cues, provide them with a rich learning environment, and be actively involved with them to help foster and cultivate their own intuition.

All you need to successfully raise thriving individuals is to love them and have the desire to help them succeed and learn. Unschooling doesn't have to cost a thing and can be achieved through the use of the internet, your local library, Mother Nature, and sheer curiosity.

We did a lot of unschooling activities with our kids when they were babies and preschoolers. My favorite thing to do was to take nature walks and use crayons to make rubbings of leaves and other things we found along the trail. My kids are older and attend public school now, but I miss having the time with them!

This is a wonderful hub - I think this is packed with great ideas for folks who see the benefits of trusting our kids and working with them to achieve a natural, healthy development as people.

All four of mine have grown in a very open, communication-based family environment with no school and are all happy, well-adjusted and doing very well academically, too.

I found that through honesty, ease and enthusiasm coupled with buckets of trust, everything worked out fine. I never had to 'discipline' or any of that. We are all still close and it's great to be friends with your kids.

Great article. Well done and voted up and ticked across! :)

This was great! I do most of these things with my toddler, since I am a stay-at-home mom, and the daycare thing didn't work out so well. I wasn't a big fan of daycare because they forced my child into things she did not want to do or was not interested in (and she was just barely two). They also told me she could not carry her lovey in the toddler room, even though it was a new and strange place, and her lovey was all she had to feel comfortable. Eventually I decided that that was not the place for my child to learn and grow, because I allow her to find her own interests and they did not. I did not realize that I was actually unschooling my child, but now I do, and since I am even more aware of it I will keep doing what I'm doing.

Congrats on hub of the day, you deserve it! This is a great hub with very interesting and useful information. Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Good hub! I am a big believer in unschooling when they are young! They need to explore their own interests. It is a shame that many schools focus so much on testing and outcomes that the process of learning, based on fun activities and interests is absolutely lost.

I'd heard of this but never knew exactly what it was (I don't have kiddos). Apparently, I'm an "unschooled adult" though because when I get interested in something, I've been known to check out 20 books from the library so I can learn everything I can about it. :D

Excellent hub! This was how I and my sisters were homeschooled. I went to regular school until third grade. I despised it. I hated the other children, the teachers, and the restricting curriculum. I loved being unschooled though. I remember having weeks when I would just read classic literature, or challenge myself to read a whole encyclopedia. Or, maybe I wanted to research paleontology--I could take a week and do that. I was allowed to read way above my grade level, (unlike public school) and to skip grades. I was technically graduated from high school by the age of fourteen.

It helped with my socialization too. When I was allowed to make friendships on my terms, rather than just who I was assigned to sit or work with in school, I found it easy to get along with other kids. I didn't have to worry about cliques anymore either!

You sound like you are doing a great job with unschooling. I hope you continue it, as it really is beneficial to the child. I have already begun to unschool my daughter, and she too, has a fascination with learning.

Congrats on HOTD. You definitely deserved it!

Unschooling is one of those techniques that sounds so strange and counter-intuitive until you really actually try it (and do it well). Some of the nicest and brightest kids I've ever been around are unschoolers. Learning is for life. Thanks for putting out quality information about this subject to help get rid of the myths.

I have a two-year-old and have been reading about the subject of unschooling. I love it! My little one and I spend a lot of time outdoors because she loves nature. We study seeds, rocks, and shells, feel textures of the plants and sand, and talk about birds and other wildlife. Thanks for sharing this--I appreciate the links at the end, as well.

This was an excellent read. I am a big believer in letting kids explore and learn the world around them versus having everything prescribed for them in an orderly fashion. There is a lot of growth that occurs better with trial and error and just basic exploration of their surroundings. Thanks for writing this, there was many great ideas for fun things for little ones to do.

Unschooling is a very interesting topic, I had never heard of it before. Th emain problem that I see with unschooling is it could hold your child back from pursuing a career.

Danielle, how would it hold a child back from pursuing a career (since kids don't pursue careers)? Many unschoolers choose to go on to college and do very well there too.

Thanks, stuff4kids! I was homeschooled/unschooled myself, along with my 2 siblings. All three of us attended college and had no problems thriving there.

However, when unschooling is done properly, this is simply not the case. Blessings!

DanielleCherise, I really don't see how it could hold a child back from pursuing a career. If a child is allowed to explore their interests, would they not be exploring potential career opportunities as well? I would much rather my child embrace his interests in say music, and follow a career in that field, instead of being forced to study a set curriculum that does not allow him to embrace his passions.

Sure that's great if they pursue their interests. But you can't use that to get a degree or further education. For colleges you need transcripts showing what classes you have taken. Simply saying you explored your interests is not enough. No institution would accept that. Its hard enough getting some homeschool transcripts recognized. Children should be able to pursue their interest, which they do anyway, but this unschooling isn't very substantial unless its paired with an actual education.

This was a very interesting article, and falls in line with what I now believe is a better way of educating the young. Would that I had known about this when my own kids were youngsters!

I tried to nudge them in that direction with my grandkids, but neither of them felt qualified to home-school, so yet another generation is falling victim to the public school system..

Voted up, interesting, awesome and shared here and on FB.

suzettenaples 3 years ago

How far and to what age do you continue this method? Will you always unschool your child? Will you ever sent your child to a traditional school? If so, at what age? Will you 'school' your child at home? Great article but I am curious about this and have so many questions.

LongTimeMother profile image

LongTimeMother 3 years ago from Australia

Congratulations, great hub!

I can see where the conflict lies in the varying comments here, Daniella. Lots of us followed the same 'unschooling' principles with our babies and toddlers even 30 years ago but it was called 'active parenting' and, in fact, was condemned by many because it was considered too educational. I never understood that, because I thought it was great to offer my littlies new experiences and the chance to explore. What kid wants to just be confined to a play area on the floor?

Most people don't continue with 'unschooling' once school begins. They send their children to school.

I have home schooled two of my children at various times - one when she was still young, and another when she was in high school and hating it. But even when the kids are actively attending school, we still explore things and learn in all the other waking hours. :)

Daniella Lopez profile image

Daniella Lopez 3 years ago from Arkansas Author

DanielleCherish: Actually, unschoolers can attend university. I did. What my mother did was keep a record of everything we did, sort of in a journal format. She then condensed that into a transcript which was accepted by the university I attended (University of Arkansas). I never had to take a GED, all I needed was my transcript and ACT scores. By the way, most universities today are more interested in your ACT or SAT scores than transcripts and diplomas.

Daniella Lopez 3 years ago from Arkansas Author

Hi, suzettenaples. I plan on blending unschooling and homeschooling once my children reach the ages of 8. Prior to 8, it will be unschooling/Waldorf method. As of right now, I do not plan to send my children to public schools. If a Waldorf or Montessori school were nearby, I would consider placing my children into one of them.

I don't mind your questions one bit. If you have any more, feel free to message me on the comments here or you can email me if you'd like. :)

Thank you Daniella, for touching upon such a useful topic. The term "Unschooling" is not very heard off and not many people know about it.

I strongly agree with you when you say that one of the wonderful things about unschooling is that it starts from birth. This is absolutely true. I believe that Unschooling is important as it prepares kids for an uncertain and a rapidly changing future.

Btw, you have mentioned some interesting ideas for unschooling kids. I especially like the idea to learn about a new country each month. Am going to start this with my little one from 1st April itself. I am sure we are going to have a great time doing this activity.

Thank you once again, a truly well deserved post.

I know Dayna. I worked with her when she was a waitress,before her kids arrived. When she came into my store, her child thought he could run around "wild", touch everything, and she didn't really care. He was "learning". I'm glad she never came back.

Every "unschooled" child I have come into contact with has little to no discipline, and have no idea how to interact in the "real" world. Sending a child to school has nothing to do with disrespecting the child, more with teaching the child what the real world is all about. The real world is going to slap her kids right up side the head, as they fall behind all the others who have discipline, manners, and structure.

I went to her site, and watched the videos of her on Dr. Phil. Her kids do what they want, when they want, and there is no control. They eat what they want, when they want. They go to be when they want. Her 5 year old still has a baby bottle. Her son Devin has a speech issue, which doesn't seem to be being addressed. Yeah, her unschooled child is going to "give your honor child a job"...HA. I doubt it. My kids went to the same high school that her husband did. They excelled because they had the desire to. It was not the school that had the issue.

If you ask me, she and her husband are over compensating for having a crappy childhood.

The Unlearner 3 years ago from Isle of Wight UK

It is funny, I really don't think school teaches any child about the 'real world' it teaches indoctrination, mind control , and how to pass exams. I don't entirely subscribe to all Dayna Martins idea's, but at least she looks at how children should be respected in our society- not many people care these days.

In response to unschooled children needing to have the exams to enter higher education- then this is completely achievable for free thinking individuals. I have taken courses outside of school, and my husband, who was considered 'non- academic' at school, passed his medical school entrance exams with flying colours, and this was as a mature student. Lets think outside the box people.

I love how the philosophy of 'unschooling' really presses peoples buttons, and shakes the comfortable foundations of conditioning that most of us have learnt in school.

Remember that having a good education does not mean you know everything, learning never stops :)

I completley agree with you The Unlearner. Today's education system is a dinosaur. Unschoolers can go as far as they want to go and choose a life that is right for them. I know that I used to be a skeptic too. It's very hard to understand how this works until you're actually doing and actually meeting other people who do it.

Great hub! We have a 30 month old boy and he never stops exploring. While he's not home schooled, when we are at home, he leads the way with what he wants to do next. When he chooses what to do or where to go, I think he learns a lot more about his world rather than us showing him things that we picked. Nice job!
