"you have to read 14 of these books, write a good book report on each, over the next 3 years. You have to read this Consumer Math book and show me you can do the work, especially the ones about small business ownership. You have to research vocational training and community colleges around here and you are responsible for making list, plans, getting knowledge, etc. You have to make it all about results and let them know you won't be financially supporting them later."

i read a lot of you have tos in this post. i don't understand how this is unschooling...? I thought true unschooling parents allow their child to completely immerse themselves in whatever the child was doing even if it meant playing video games all day for 3 months. i thought unschooling was a lot about the parents letting go of trying to control everything and learning to trust their child...?
