Has anyone else ever heard of this? I am watching a special on radical parenting styles. Un-schooling is a theory that that parents do not set any boundaries for there children at all. The kids do whatever they want including watching as much tv as they want, eating whatever they choose, sleeping when they want and only bathing and brushing their teeth if they choose. The kids do not attend any formal school setting either including home schooling. They are completely SELF TAUGHT!! The parents feel they learn from every day experiences by themselves.
What are your thoughts about this? I personally feel that these parents should be put in jail for child abuse.
These children are not going to be able to function in society with out having any boundaries or rules. The parents are setting them up for failure later in life.
