When I began unschooling my three children in 2002, it wasn’t long before I came across the idea that strong relationships with my children were essential for unschooling—and learning in general—to thrive. At first, I thought, sure, that’s a worthwhile goal, but what exactly does that have to do with their learning? That became clear over the next months and years as I continued to question the conventional wisdom around parenting and how children learn.

The Value of Relationships for Learning is a talk I originally wrote for the Canadian Online Homeschool Conference and I’m excited to share it with you guys now!
