There is a really, REALLY common worry about unschooling – “My kid only likes one thing, and he won’t do anything but that if I don’t push him to do other things”. Usually it’s video games, TV or Yu-Gi-Oh. But sometimes it’s skateboarding or reading or drawing…..

  这是对非学校教育普遍而真切的担忧——“我的孩子只喜欢一样东西,假如我不催他做别的,他就只做那一件事,什么都不做”。通常,这些事情不是电玩,就是电视,或者游戏王(Yu-Gi-Oh),有时也会是滑板、阅读或绘画……

  Among unschoolers/life learners/whatever, there are many answers to this. My answer is this – then push him! Jeez. Pushing kids to do things doesn’t mean we’re forcing them to learn, or expect them to perform for us or even expecting them to like it. There’s a cool movie, or an art festival or a interesting class, or whatever… there’s nothing wrong or un-unschooly with trying to convince a child to go.

  在非学校教育者/终身学习者(随意怎么称谓吧)中,可能会有很多对策。我的答案是——那就推动他!呃,推动孩子做事情并非意味着我们迫使他们学习,或者希冀他们为我们表现,以至希冀他们会喜欢。有部很酷的电影、艺术节,或有趣的课程等等……试图压服孩子参与是没错的,也没有偏离非学校教育的目标。

  Unschoolers don’t just sit back and go, “whatever”. We are engaged, fully, completely and wholly engaged with our kids. All kinds of homeschoolers are. But unschooling gets this rap for being “hands off” when it’s very much the opposite.

  非学校教育者并非只坐以待毙。我们参与其中,全身心投入到孩子身上。一切居家教育者都如此。可非学校教育者总在状况完全相反时,听人说要“放手”。

  Communication is the key to learning as a family. Communication is how we know if what we are doing is working. Kids can communicate surprisingly well what they need if we are willing to sit down with them and listen to what they have to say.

  作为家人一起学习,关键是沟通。经过沟通,我们才干晓得所做的能否有效。假如我们愿意和孩子一起坐下来,倾听他们的心声,他们有效沟通自己需求的才干会让你刮目相看。

  Homeschooling and parenting are not about parents deciding what happens and kids follow. At, they shouldn’t be in my opinion. They are co-operative efforts. Even unschooling parents have needs, and are allowed to speak up about those needs. For example, we could say, “These are the needs I have as a parent – I need to be with you and spend time with you doing things. I like to see you learning new things and I like seeing you stretch your brain. Do you like these things too? How can we do this? How can we make our days so that you get the computer time you want, but I also get the family time I crave and I get to see you do other things?”

  居家教育和当家长不是家长决议怎么做,然后让孩子效法。至少鄙人不敢苟同。这应该是同心协力的工作。即便居家教育的家长也有需求,而且也能够大声说出这些需求。比如,我们能够说,“这些是我作为家长的需求——我需要和你在一起,我需要花时间和你一起做事。我喜欢看你学习新东西,我喜欢看你动脑筋。你也喜欢这样吗?我们怎么才干做到呢?我们该怎么布置时间,好让你有想要的电脑时间呢,不过也让我有我盼望的家庭时间,让我也看到你做其他事?”
