Unschooling means so much more than a hands-on, child-directed, and experience-based way of learning. It doesn't describe a specific alternative to schooling. It just gets schooling out of the way so various unique dynamic personal creative ways of growing up, living, participating, and contributing to communities can develop. When I say "unschooling," I really mean living cooperatively with children. What began as a way to approach my children's learning/education has evolved into a whole lifestyle characterized by unlimited creative possibilities for our whole family. In other words, we perceive our life as a creative adventure. We're all in it together. In "The Unschooling Happiness Project," I present my family life as a creative project, share my deeper motivations behind choosing the unschooling lifestyle, and include some practicalities of daily unschooling life.
