What is my favorite part of the 'unschooling/homeschooling/interest-led' life? Getting to just say yes, in the interest of learning.
Here are a few pictures to describe what we've said 'yes' to today.
And it's my belief, the more I say yes, the easier the no's will be. I'm building confident, self-assured children that believe in themselves. If I said no to all their ideas, wouldn't this teach them that their ideas aren't any good?! Saying yes to painting, or creating, or constructing is very, very different than saying yes to poor behavior, disrespectful actions, or material 'wants.'
How do you view the word 'yes' in your house? Is it 'yes' when it meets your needs AND the kids' needs? How many yes's are allowed that completely trump your need for cleanliness, organization, &/or control?
It's a 'yes' kind of mood over here.
