How to Create a Family Environment of Learning

Jodi Chaffee is a homeschool mom of 4 kids. She takes an unschooling approach. Jodi says her role as a parent is to create an environment of learning and to provide resources so her kids can explore and learn. She trusts her kids to bring the desire to learn; she then helps them fulfill that desire by giving them the needed tools. This approach to learning is different than what we see in public schools but has provided a great education for their family.

Jodi always wanted to homeschool. Her older sister homeschooled her kids. She and them at home on 9/11 and they were living in Detroit.

All of the schools shut down there and they wouldn’t release the kids. Parents were panicked.

Her sister, while this was going on, she was home with the kids teaching them about what was happening. She was able to teach them about their beliefs and to help them understand what was going on.

Jodi wanted to be able to teach her kids about their beliefs and keep them safe at home.
