No school for my kids: radical unschooling methods
YOU’VE heard of home schooling, now meet the mum who calls herself a ‘radical unschooler.’ Maryanne Jacobs, from Gorebridge, Scotland, is part of a new wave of women who don’t send their kids to school – and don’t teach them at home either. The 32-year-old says her daughter, Rio, nine, and son, Bryden, eight, learn ‘naturally’ on their own by playing computer games like Minecraft and through life experiences – like baking and shopping and being outdoors. Maryanne says Bryden, a numbers whizz, picked up numbers on his own through a Pokemon card game. And her daughter’s love of words came from board games like Monopoly and Scrabble.

I'm sure this is a moment that goalkeeper would like back! His attempt at clearing the ball ends up turning into a bizarre own goal. From a recent match featuring NCAA teams Nazarene and Oklahoma Baptist.
Andy Miller spotted this moment of child genius while enjoying the snow on a place called Rocket Hill in Hutchinson, Minnesota. In a video he called “The coolest kids on the hill”, Miller shows the kids riding in a homemade rocket down the hill. Credit: YouTube/Andy Miller.
