1 | Leo Babauta’s thoughts and his family experiences

Leo is one of the most famous minimalists. He’s the author of blogs Zen Habits (since 2007) and mnmlist. And a father of six kids. Four of them were homeschooled/unschooled since 2008.

Leo talks mostly about unschooling. To give you a kind of definition, I’d say that homeschooling is more like doing the school’s curriculum at home and unschooling means letting kids learn what excites them. There are many motivations, discoveries, and benefits the same for both approaches and it’s why I’m putting unschooling among homeschooling resources.

If you prefer short amounts of information at first, check Leo’s most important articles about unschooling:
