I love a good story. Thankfully, so does KidFish. These are some of the books we’re enjoying this week.

When people find out that I’m a stay-with-child mom, they often ask, “Are you going to homeschool?” I’m not opposed to the idea, but I really haven’t decided one way or the other. There are so many different options for educating KidFish: public, private, homeschool, un-schooling, etc.

This video with Seth Godin gives me something to think about. He asks a fundamental question: “What is school for?” and challenges me to use my answer to that question as a guide for how I educate KidFish.

Not just how, but why. Start with why. The why should dicatate the how.

If you’re interested in more, check out his manifesto “Stop Stealing Dreams.” It’s fascinating.
