Claiming the U Word

I’ve been reluctant to call what we do “unschooling” because of the connotations associated with the word, but essentially that is what we do. I still like other terminology better (such as “self-directed learning”), or, better yet, refraining from using labels in the first place; and while I’ll continue to use the generic “homeschooling” to avoid confusion, particularly with strangers, I’m also claiming the U word today.
