Today I have my lovely son here to talk about something that is really important to him!
He asked me if he could write something about what he loves about not using school.
He wants other families to think about unschooling and unnecessarily controlling kids.
Hi, I’m Cameron. I am seven. I love minecraft, pokemon, soccer, lego, and playing with my friends.
I don’t go to school.
I wish kids weren’t forced to learn things they don’t want to. I wish they all got to learn like I do. I wish all kids got to eat when they want to and play when they want to.
I like that I get to play with friends that are all different ages. I have friends who are adults and friends who are younger than me.
I love that I get to spend time with my sister who is five and my baby sister who is 10 months old. And my mum and dad too.
I really wish that other parents knew how easy it is to not use school.
I think kids should get to choose what they do and not be forced. If we just show them how it works maybe they will listen to their kids.
It’s so good I don’t have to get up and rush around in the morning. I can just eat whenever and whatever I want. I don’t feel forced.
I like playing in nature. I get to spend lots of time with my friends and we get to choose what we do.
We went camping with lots of our friends who unschool and it was so exciting and we all played and explored all day. I discovered lots of new things because my friend who is nine told me about it and I talked with some other mums.
I am glad I don’t have to sit down all the time because I love running and soccer. It’s good I don’t have to always do things at a certain time.
When I’m in the car with my mum we always talk about lots of things and she answers all my questions. I know my mum and dad will always listen to me. I don’t like how some adults are distracted and don’t answer their kids. At parks sometimes I see them do that and yell at their kids.
I see kids in school when we drive past and they all are wearing the same things and doing the same things. I think I’m lucky that I get to just be me.
Thank you for reading! I know Cam would LOVE to hear your comments.
