This is episode 60 and today I’m here with Sue Patterson answering more of your unschooling questions.

Sue Patterson, a homeschooling mom with over 20 years of experience, is also an author, podcaster, and unschooling coach. She helps families who aren’t happy with their educational situations, and shows them how learning more about unschooling might help. She runs Unschooling Mom2Mom – which is available on all the social media platforms – and wants to be sure families know they have options!


Grandparents: We discuss how to respond when extended family, like grandparents, express concerns about their child’s education (for example, when they will start reading).

Needs: We cover how to unschool with multiple kids of different ages and temperaments.

Knowledge: We talk about how you can support your child in learning through interests even if it’s something you don’t know much about.

I work from an island in the Pacific Northwest, where I live wild and free in connection with my hilarious husband and three growing sailors in our fixer upper on the beach. I authentically live this healing work out loud raising my own neurodivergent family (inner child included) and draw on my decades of education and experience (I've done all the nerdy work so you don't have to) to guide a revolution of overwhelmed parents just like you to feeling at peace within yourself, consciously connected with your children, embraced by a supportive community, and enjoying a values-aligned life you love.
