The story behind the guide

Hello! I’m excited you’re here, because it means you’re part of a growing movement of parents who are considering a different path through life with their children.

Maybe you’ve decided your active child won’t be a good fit for the regimented structure of a classroom.

Maybe you feel almost physical pain when you think about dropping your child off every morning.

Maybe you’re worried your child’s creativity will be squashed by a relentless focus on academics.

Maybe you were bullied yourself, and the thought of your sensitive child spending their lunch breaks in a school playground fills you with dread.

Whatever your reason for landing here is, this little guide will help you bring those feelings to the surface. It will help you put a finger squarely on why you feel the way you do. And it will help you put words to it all.
