DISCO – the unschooling course
Hey, I see you. You care so much about your child and their learning but you are feeling so over this situation!
Are you over the nagging? The overwhelm? The disconnection between you and your child?
Your heart understands that there’s a different way, but you don’t know how to bring that to life.
You’ve tried a bunch of stuff – even MORE structure, a whole colour co-ordinated schedule, or even LESS structure, just the basics.
But nothing seems to work – you don’t feel at peace, or perhaps some days it feels like your child doesn’t even like learning full stop.
These things don’t work is because we have learning all upside down!
This makes us confused about what a child needs from their parents. A parent’s role in a child’s education is to trust them, support them, to open doors for them. Archaic ideas about learning put you in the awful position of having to nag them to do something they really don’t want.
What you really need to do is to re-imagine what your child’s learning could look like.
- You need research that shows the ways that traditional curriculum and teaching fails our kids.
- You need to understand the science of how kids really learn and you need examples of what this looks like in practice.
- You need your hard questions about reading and your child’s future answered – you need the research that shows that more unschoolers go to university than traditionally schooled kids!
I’m here to help with that.
Who am I?
Over this last year over 500 families have taken my course. As a mum of two kids who’ve never been to school and a trained Applied Depths Coach I am here to hold your hand as you ask the big questions about the kind of childhood you want to provide for your kids. I’m here to go through the above research with you and help you bring to life the vision you have for your child’s learning.
Disco is Latin for “learn” because home education should embody the kind of freedom and joy you see when people are throwing shapes on the dance floor!
The DISCO unschooling course is the perfect foundation for a different childhood for your kids and a better connection between you.
This value packed course enables you to:
- Address the fears and underlying beliefs that keep you stuck
- Discover an education based on what science says about the ideal learning environment
- Get intimate with the research that will shore up your confidence
- Get excited about a childhood based on trust and connection
- Feel grounded about your child’s future prospects
Who is DISCO for?
You have imagined a different childhood for your kids, one where they feel able to grow into exactly who they are rather than squeezed into a box, one where their energy and creativity has full expression, where their rights and dignity are upheld, but you have just a few questions and concerns to work through before saying a full YES to that childhood!
This is for you if:
- you need want to be supported to face your fears and befriend them
- you know there is a an education available that will bring out the very best in your child and you want to embark on that journey feeling fully equipped.
- you feel an urge to unschool but want to turn your nervousness about leaping in into courage
- you’ve been unschooling a while but want to transform your overwhelm into confidence and joy
- you want to let go of fear and get intimate with trust
- you want to accelerate your own deschooling process
This pop up community of fellow travellers will give you chance to ask the questions and imagine a different future for your family.
What does this course involve?
This course involves 4 online classes that you can do at your convenience with accompanying workbooks. There is also a community hub that allows for individualised hand holding.
In Week One we put your firmly on the map, so you know where you are, where you want to go and how you are going to get there! We begin to explore any fears and resistance, to clear the way for imagining a different future. We take a brief historical tour of education and start to understand why we so deeply yearn for something different for our family.
We discover how children learn and why traditional schooling is failing our children. We bed down in our understanding of how unschooling supports learning and see the unique ways the unschooled child ends up with all the important stuff from a traditional curriculum under their belt. We address one of the most common fears around self-directed learning – learning to read. This module is designed to help you feel more confident when responding to concerns from family members about your choices.
In Week Three we take a macro look at the importance of re-imagining childhood and education. Why are we trying to solve 21st century problems with 19th century education models and curriculum? What are the kinds of skills children are going to need and how can we facilitate our kids having access to them? Module three will strengthen your resolve in the power of self directed learning for a better future, and your desire to have a child able to contribute to it.
In our last week together we look at the practical aspects of self directed learning at home and how people make this work in different circumstances. What are you going to need and how are you going to access it? I introduce the “Four C’s” of successful unschooling. You lean in to your vision of yourself as an unschooling family and finish with the fuel to achieve it!
The brilliant Akilah S Richards comes in as guest educator for a segment on unschooling as liberation work and creating equitable spaces.
