I am currently reviewing a book about Christian Unschooling. I came across a question from the book that really made me sit back and think. I would love to know your thoughts.
"Why are certain subjects (math for instance) seen as more valuable pursuits than other disciplines, even if that child is not destined for a life using anything more than basic arithmetic?"
I have often pondered this question on my own. What if the "other disciplines" are Illustrating, Creative Writing, Art, Drama, or Stage Makeup. If your child is good at these things why should they not be allowed to devote all their time to those disciplines.
I would love to hear your thoughts. Please comment and tell me what you think.
