I just got to thinking today of some people's arguments on homeschooling and children not learning to be on a schedule. Especially say unschool families (which we are not but have considered it a time or two). These people ask how are these children going to learn that in the "real world" they won't know how to get to work on time and things like that. Well I got to thinking that is really a silly thing to say.
Why? Because for one I am sure these children have doctors and dentist appointments right?! I am also sure if (and I am sure the do) they have play dates with their friends and that is usually at a time where both sets of parents can be there! Also what about going on field trips? I am sure they make a time to get out of the house to make it to where ever they are going (with or without a homeschool group)at a certain time.
So why does learning a schedule really have to be only learned in a brick and mortar school? There are many everyday opportunities for people to learn to be places on time. Does it really have to happen everyday for a child/person to learn this? I really don't think so. Homeschooling and especially Unschooling is about experiencing life and learning from life. So this argument about unschooling/homeschooling is just silly to me.
Ok I am done LOL. It was just on my mind lately and wanted to put it out there for people to think about too. I know it isn't well thought out or the best of writing but it's what I was thinking LOL.
ETA: Thanks Julie I can't believe I forgot getting up every Sunday (for those with Christian beliefs like us :D) and going to church on time too!! How could I forget that!! Thanks again Julie LOL.
