    All children are natural born learners and should be free to live and be raised as independent thinking, information seeking, self-directed lovers of learning. Rediscover education and unlearn what you know about schools. They are not the place for the bright children of the technological age! 

    What's Wrong with School? Many experts over the years say everything! This book is my personal research into schools. I homeschooled my children and then unschooled my children and came to the conclusion that the less interference from outside forces, the better for kids.

    This book is filled with inspirational quotes which are valuable pieces of wisdom and sayings to remind you that the path of parenting an entrepreneur is a path of allowing and trust for their own unique attributes, talents, skills, interests and brilliance unfold.

  • “I am thrilled, humbled and inspired to have started unschooling my 6 and 11 year old girls. I began with a Waldorf curriculum but still found myself getting frustrated that they weren't meeting the grade but then I read your booksBorn To Learn and School Sucks. We are still getting comfortable with it and with each other in this new arrangement, but alrady life is better. Thank you so much for such wonderful
    information. I really needed this to help me continue with what I have known all along is the right path.”
    - Maura K., Unschooling Parent
  • “I've been teaching preschool and kindergarten for over ten years. I love teaching. My son has always been with me in my classroom until he started public school for the first time. I've found it to be an awful experience. I turned to your books
    and found so much supportive information and realized this is what I have been wanting to do all along and what my son should experience. Your resources and books are outstanding. Instead of feeling helpless, I now know what I need to do and I am doing it.
    - Scott R., Unschooling Parent
  • “Your words made me feel stronger. To be told what I already feel just affirms my own beliefs and it is just nice to get support sometimes. I greatly appreciate that you took the time to "speak" with me and reach out to another mama. I will keep your letter for those times that I need inspiration. I don't want to step in line with the crowd and I now feel revived to hold fast to my own self! Thank you Kytka, you have helped me a lot in believing in my own capabilities as a parent, but more so, in believing in my children.”
