Sandra Dodd is coming to Edinburgh!
Sandra Dodd is a popular, prolific and high-profile unschooler from New Mexico, USA. Through her speaking, writing and website, she has inspired many home educating parents to enjoy learning and living alongside their children.
Here is a flavour of what you might hear from her:
Halfway between the past we can't change and the future we can only imagine, we find ourselves in the present. Not just the present year, but the present day; not just the present day, but the present moment.
We make choices ALL the time. Learning to make better ones in small little ways, immediate ways, makes life bigger and better. Choosing to be gentle with a child, and patient with ourselves, and generous in ways we think might not even show makes our children more gentle, patient and generous.
"I was asked in public once, 'Are you willing to risk your children’s future on your theories?' -- 'Yes. Aren’t you?' was my answer then, and still is."
