This group is for unschooling families in Palm Beach County, Florida. Unschoolers do not follow ANY curriculum, therefore this is not the place to discuss curriculum! Forming a group of like-minded individuals that can meet to socialize and empower one another is what this list is all about. We wish to extend our welcome to not only unschoolers, but to those who might be tempted to try unschooling as well as families sharing "attachment parenting" philosophies. To most of us here unschooling is merely a continuation of this parenting style.
