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.”

Thanks for being here!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you real soon.
