-| An Unschooling Reflection|- 

It was my neighbour's sons first day of first standard. He was super excited about it and came dashing into the room to show off his new school uniform and school bag. After a short excited and animated conversation about minions and school buses he asks - 

"What do you think I'm going to learn in school today?"

Without pause I answer, "You're going to learn how to sit still in a desk for long periods of time and watch the clock."

Months later I still find myself wondering if I should've or shouldn't have been so direct and honest.
