Homeschooling 101 - How to Homeschool

Children are naturally inquisitive and endlessly creative in discovering the world around them, free from the constant testing, peer pressure we see in today's unsafe and uninspiring school environments. Join Homeschooling families, let's take this journey together!

Why the podcast...

If you are new to the idea of Homeschooling, but very attracted by the results, then this is the place for you.

As more and more of us are unhappy with the public school options, Creative Homeschooling, Alternative Education and Self Directed Learning are definitely increasing their appeal to any forward thinking parent who wants the best for their children.

In these interviews, we will get to the bottom of all the possible fears you may have about taking your kids out of traditional schooling, with short yet consice commute sized talks headed by the leading lights out there, to answer who is doing, how are they doing and can YOU do it!

I don’t know if any of you have been around many Homeschooled kids, but they are a different breed! They open their eyes wide with enthusiasm, ask you relevant and thoughtful questions, and don’t see you as an authority figure to be feared but a fellow human being to be trusted and a likely source of inspiration.

That is what so many of our upcoming guests point to. If you are new and have questions, get around family’s already “on the path”, to see how you can transform the drudgery and creative crushing 12 odd years of public schooling, into a family life full of creativity and joy.

Week One - The Podcast Launch with Dr Ron Paul

It is with such excitement and joy I write to you all today.

As many of you have been with us from the beginning, but may have missed some episodes of the summit, we felt it best to re-release these talks and add many new and exciting guests added each week, for you to keep and listen to at your convenience.

These are families I have met on the road traveling the globe, that can offer you unique insights into how people view learning so differently from all corners of the planet, teachers involved in trying to change the system from within and visionairies starting their own adventures in Creative Learning, whether it be Homeschooling, Unschooling, Child Led Learning or involvement in many of the new and exciting alternative schools springing up all over the place.

So please, go over to Itunes or Stitcher and look us up “The Homeschooling and Liberty Podcast” to download these talks, and if you you find them inspiring and think other families looking for alternatives to traditional schooling might also, please give us a nice review and rating to get the word out there! Thank you so much.

To start we go back to the beginning with three time presidential candidate, founder of The Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, podcast host and overall legend in his relentless pursuit of peace and broadcasting the message of liberty, Dr Ron Paul joins us to reflect on his family upbringing and how he feels the conversation of the future of education is the most important one we should be having. Dr Paul is an amazing speaker and we get a rare glimpse of how he feels his involvement in providing a Homeschooling Curriculum and his passion in promoting The Homeschooling Movement in general, will be his furthest reaching and greatest legacy in changing the intellectual climate.

Week Two - Patrick Farenga from John Holt Growing without Schooling

Hello, Good Morning and Welcome!

Looking forward to next week’s show makes me really excited!

Just in these first few episodes of the show, we really hope you get a feel of what it is to let children learn naturally through the world around them, free from strict timetables, exams, peer pressures or unsafe school environments.
Well, Patrick Farenga is our guest next week and if you don’t know, Patrick has spent three plus decades working with the visionary philosophies of The Grandfather of Unschooling, John Holt.
The talk is a must listen, as we get to hear about Patrick’s immersion into the world of Homeschooling, to how he tirelessly promotes the extensive research and findings of John Holt, through his website "John Holt Growing Without Schooling" which you can find here.
So many crucial Homeschooling topics covered in the talk to mention, so I leave you with a couple of timeless quotes from John Holt for your midweek muse as you watch the endless creativity rise unprompted in your little companions, no sauce needed!
“Children learn from anything and everything they see. They learn wherever they are, not just in special learning places.” 
“To trust children we must first learn to trust ourselves...and most of us were taught as children that we could not be trusted.”
