John Holt was the Father of #HomeEd and #Unschooling. A man decades and centuries ahead of his time. Autism was rarely heard of. Dyslexia and ADHD just emerging. Yet Holt has much wisdom to share on #neurodivergence.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T Is it something that only #Important people deserve? What do your teach your #HappilyAutistic little human? And what harm might that do to them?
Is #behavior intended to please your #parents or others really what #Respect means?
If Jean Jacques Rousseau challenged the WHY’s of #education for me then it is another Jean…Piaget…that made me think about the HOWs.
Respect your elders! Children today have no respect. Parenting a #ProudlyPDA little human had taught me a totally different meaning of this one.
This thing called #RadiCoolUnschooling your #Neurodivergent little human may seem like some New Age touchy feely philosophy. In fact, it can trace its roots over three and a half centuries to the still groundbreaking works of Jean Jacques #Rousseau.
