Saving energy as a family

This is a sponsored post “Can we install it? Please?” The kids were supposed to be getting ready for bed. The only thing I find harder than trying to follow instructions is trying to follow them while having people talk to me. So I was inclined to say “no”. Then again, wasn’t this a great […] The post Saving energy as a family appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more

What are they learning from, for instance, baking?
Adele Jarrett-Kerr Blog
by Adele Jarrett-Kerr
3y ago
It’s an unschooler classic to say that kids learn things like maths from baking. And like so many things I eventually came round to (eg bedsharing!), I couldn’t wrap my head around that as surely what you could learn is limited? Au contraire! When you allow a child to dive deep into their passion, supporting […] The post What are they learning from, for instance, baking? appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more

How unschooling helped me find more of myself this year

by Adele Jarrett-Kerr
3y ago
At the beginning of the pandemic, like many other home educators, I was asked to write to offer advice to everyone who now found themselves “homeschooling”. I turned down most requests partly because I felt overwhelmed at the time but also because I knew that what I could offer wasn’t what they were asking for.

Stepping into another year without school as an unschooling parent
Adele Jarrett-Kerr Blog
by Adele Jarrett-Kerr
4y ago
We have never particularly followed the school terms, having home educated from the start, and yet, something about September always whispers “fresh start” to me. Even though there’s clearly something schooled about the timing of this, that new year feeling invites us to take time to reset intentions and place rituals around the choices we […] The post Stepping into another year without school as an unschooling parent appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more

Home educators, anti-racism work is for you too
Adele Jarrett-Kerr Blog
by Adele Jarrett-Kerr
4y ago
Many of the recent conversations in home educator spaces around anti-racism have been both encouraging and depressing. Perhaps they unveil how white the homeschooling landscape is. I use “homeschooling” to mean education outside of school as a globally recognised term, rather than in reference to a specific education or parenting approach. By “white” I don’t […] The post Home educators, anti-racism work is for you too appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more

From semi-structured homeschooling to unschooling

by Adele Jarrett-Kerr

Following my post on unschooling for decolonisation, I’m going to unpack what shifting from semi-structured home education to unschooling has meant for our family. On the surface, some people might have considered what we’ve done from the start unschool-y or at least child-respecting in the sense that our life has generally been free flowing rather […] The post From semi-structured homeschooling to unschooling appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more

Unschooling for decolonisation
Adele Jarrett-Kerr Blog
by Adele Jarrett-Kerr
4y ago
Colonisation works to bring us all into line. It insists that there is one knowledge stream, one way of doing things, one value system for understanding success. It enforces this agenda to the detriment of all ancestral knowledge, all other ways of knowing and doing, and leaves us with a narrow vision of what life […] The post Unschooling for decolonisation appeared first on Adele Jarrett-Kerr ..read more
