Valerie Fitzenreiter is the author of The Unprocessed Child: Living Without School, a book about that she describes as “…how we raised our daughter, Laurie, with attachment parenting and unschooling methods. I discuss issues that concern parents who are considering unschooling their children and offer advice on living a peaceful coexistence with children”.
She and her daughter Laurie (who was pursuing her PhD in sociology at the time of the interview) were interviewed together by the American Public Media. Soon after, Valerie was invited back to reply to readers comments, including a teacher who thinks we should keep our children in school and work harder to make the public school system better.
Here are the links to both interviews. I highly recommend taking time to listen to both of them if you’re interested in learning more about unschooling.attachment parenting, Children, Laurie Chancey, learning, parents, peaceful coexistence, unschool, unschooling, Valerie Fitzenreiter
