self directed learning

tool shopping starts young we find.......Alex found the flier for an area tool sale and begged to go....

though we refused to buy him such articles as a bow or a pistol! My foot,who does he think I am!This mother's fear of lethal weapons is well established. Sorry,dear.
"We don't approach learning as something people do as a separate activity. We live our lives and learn as we go."
the unschooling handbook by Mary Griffith
Though definitely not a radical unschooler or subscribing to much of unschooling philosophy, we do tend to view learning as an ongoing process rather than a specific time frame, in our home. It's amazing what children are capable of learning,especially when you put the right tools and opportunities into their hands.
In Him,
