"Step back and remove the title from the class for a moment. Without labeling it, here’s what Synnestvedt teaches:

The kids play games, sing songs, make art and spend some time practicing being quiet.

It’s about listening to the children and validating them. Helping them stay connected to their inner knowing, or their intuition. She teaches them about personal space and how to draw relational boundaries – like how they can disagree with a friend or parent, and stay grounded without getting wrapped up in the other person’s emotions. This can help kids sleep better, channel their energy and feel more confident, Synnestvedt says."

I like the part where children are given permission to disagree and stay grounded.

I gave my children permission to challenge authority, but only when that authority didn't feel or sound quite right, or make sense. To my chagrin, that included me. gaah.gif chuckle.gif

Interesting, but I wouldn't want to surrender the power to allow my children to discover themselves to anyone else. Yeah we taught them to question authority as young so they let me have it as teens... bored.gif Now that they're grown up they appreciate it and so do I. cheers.gif

Read btw an interesting article on home schooling in Finland today

Quote:Home schooling has not become very popular in Finland. There are nearly 540,000 pupils in comprehensive schools. The most recent information about home schooling was from 2011, when about 300 families opted for it. There has been little change in the matter in recent years.
Finland has mandatory education for children, but it does not have to happen in a school.
If a family opts for home schooling, it is the municipality’s obligation to supervise the education and to grade tests.

To me it's more along the lines of introducing and exposing kids to other states of being (other people's views), as well as the family's views.

For this camp to make news, it must be popular and who knows maybe much needed to help foster creativity, as well as learning how to quiet of the mind and soul (meditation?). I also think working parents just can't do it all for their kids.

Ultimately, kids become adults and have to choose their beliefs and live their life their way and having many different experiences gives a good base from which to forge ahead.

To us it was more our daughter teaching us the other ways of thinking. She was around 3 when she very excitedly told us about an event that took place so long ago she had other parents. damned.gif

My kids would come home from public school and very often tell me they did not understand what they were taught that day, so I had to reteach myself all their school topics and spend most of my evenings (after working full-time) trying to explain it to them using different teaching methods (had to teach myself that too).

Also, at that time, the public school was teaching reading ONLY by visually remembering the word damned.gif, so I took it upon myself to teach them how to read using phonics, as well.

gaah.gif

Does it takes a whole village to raise a child? Maybe.

I had my ex for that, she made a career of playing devil's advocate just to go against my common sense. It was a delusion of control she suffered from.
She also enabled him to skip school for life, he's going on mid 20's wont work and lives with his aunt in the bedroom and speaks to no one. 13.gif

Yeah I got into visualizing math for my daughter as well using raisins and stuff like that. She got it right away when math wasn't just numbers but actual stuff that you have to use logic on.

I remember though way before she started school the kids were watching some children's show where they used fruits to explain the solar system and how things rotate around the sun when she looked at me seriously and said "I think he's trying to explain gravitation" lmao.gif

I don't know, I never had that experience of divorce and had to deal with the resulting bitterness and bringing the kids into the battle.

What I have seen with other single mothers in my neighbourhood, once their boys (and my son too) reached a certain age they just did whatever they wanted - no matter how much the mothers protested. I was lucky, because when I just couldn't handle my son any more, I let my husband step in and deal with the situations his way; I just stepped away and kept quiet.

If he were my son I'd try to strike up calm conversations about where's he's going in life as well as suggest some volunteering gigs, like Habitat for Humanity - just to get him up and doing something, anything.
