How Unschooling Affected My Life: Liana Francisco

Has anyone ever said to you that this whole idea of Unschooling does not end well? That kids will never be self directed? That there is no evidence that self directed learning actually works? 

Have they listened to my podcast? Have the heard the interviews I and countless others have shared? Well, here is more to add to the list.

This is part of a series I am exploring on grown homeschoolers and Self Directed Teens. 

In This Episode~ Living As If School Doesn't Exist

This episode is filled with so much insight and information on growing up without school, without any of the expectations of school. Liana shares what it was like living as if school doesn't exist.

Liana Francisco is a grown Unschooler that now Unschools her son. She is a multi-passionate entrepreneur who was unschooled from birth to 16 when she started college full time. She is 40 years old, so she was unschooled way back in the day when you still got the evil eye from the mail man and grocery store clerks.

Liana has a vegan wholesale food business, a consulting business, and a YouTube channel where she teaches moms with young kids how to make plant-based eating EASY with a system. She also teaches moms how to hack homemaking for more freedom AND an organized family.

Liana also shares important advice for parents that are considering this path or are uncertain about unschooling as their children grow older. 

We talked about:

  • Creating Environments That Are Right For Learning
  • How Did They Learn To Read Without Direct Instruction?
  • The Order Of Natural Learning (heads up- it doesn't resemble the order of school based learning)
  • How Will Unschoolers Succeed If Their Life Never Resembles School? 
  • Does Hard Work, Independence and Study Skills Happen With Unschooling? 
  • The Unreal Expectations Of Unschooling
