The Unschool Space

Esther Jones

Unschooling isn't just an educational choice, it's a life choice. For most parents, embracing unschooling requires some serious unravelling of old paradigms around parenting, learning and childhood, and that can be both challenging and exhilarating. Join me, Esther Jones, a mindful parenting coach and unschooling mother-of-three, as I take a look at the many opportunities for reflection that naturally arise in an unschooling home. I explore my own day-to-day life and talk to other unschooling parents and professionals who share their thoughts and experiences. From self-care, neurodiversity and mindfulness, to how to live consensually and trust our children, this podcast is here to help parents navigate the everyday challenges so they're free to create a healthy, nourishing and enriching space for themselves and their family. You can find out more about my own personal journey into unschooling at www.esther-jones.com or get in touch with me at: contact@esther-jones.com.Instagram: @_esther.jones
