Sprout on Unschooling

I don't know if I've shared before that we are planning on unschooling our kids or not, but yes, we are.

Anyhow, yesterday, we were carpooling to and from ballet and as we were approaching our building, I turned to Sprout and told her to say bye to her friend.

Sprout: I'm telling Salma about unschooling.
Me: Oh, I'm very interested to hear what you said.
Sprout (while we were climbing the stairs to our apartment): I told her it means you can do whatever you want, whenever you want.

After a good belly laugh, I gently corrected that to: LEARN whatever you want when you want to.  And yeah, you get to do a lot of stuff you want to do, just because you want to.*

And don't you know Salma must think unschooling is a pretty cool thing. :P

*Obviously this is missing a lot of nuance, but she's only 4. ;)
