Unschooling - He's Doing What All Day?

Unschooling is a child-led method of teaching and learning. Let the child show you what he is interested in and work on that with him. Some of you, trying this, may be faced with the problem that Junior wants to watch tv all day. What do you do as an unschooler? Aren't you supposed to let him pick what he does?

If Junior wanted to eat sugar three meals a day, you would know that's not healthy and wouldn't allow it. The same is true about watching television all day. If you remove tv from your home, you'll be going a long way toward ending your problem. No matter how "addicted" to television someone is, other activities soon replace it.
