Welcome to the World of Home Education and Learning Without School!
We began educating our three children in 1985, when our eldest was aged five years. In truth, we had helped them learn what they need to learn as they grew and explored and discovered this amazing world since the moment they were born. I am a passionate advocate of allowing children to learn unhindered by unnecessary stress and competition, meeting developmental needs in ways that suit their individual learning styles and preferences. Ours was a homeschooling, unschooling and natural learning family! There are hundreds of articles on this site to help you build confidence as a home educating family. I hope that your home educating adventure is as satisfying as ours was!

Please browse our sitemap for a full list of The Educating Parent articles on this topic. There are dozens of excellent websites dedicated to geography. Don't forget that geography is a HUGE subject, encompassing all aspects of our natural environment and how humanity uses and adapts to the environment. I don't believe you can completely separate the subjects of history, geography, culture and environment - they overlap in a wonderfully tangled mess! Tease out one area and you'll find yourself connected to dozens, if not hundreds, of others!
