We began unschooling Nisarga since he was two months old and are discovering that unschooling has a distinct influence on how our days unfold.
Many children these days roll over late. Nisarga is one of them. Its not that he can’t. He just doesn’t seem interested. He has rolled over from his tummy to his back and vice versa more than a few times. He can. But he is content to lie how he is. I must admit that… Read More »
