UK Unschooling Network
A key tenet of unschooling is that of aiming to not arbitrarily limit or restrict your children’s lives and interests. With that in mind, although all ‘flavours’ of unschoolers are very welcome here, this group does have one overriding principle and that is that if anyone posts here asking for advice, it should be assumed that they are asking for responses that fit with an unschooling/autonomous learning/consensual living approach.

If you have any questions or are looking for information relating to unschooling in any way then please post in UK Unschooling Network where you will find a wealth of information. This group is for a general chat and so you are free to talk about most things (as long as they are respectful to others) it doesn’t need to just be related to unschooling.
