Unschool Monday-The Pendulum

I had one of the biggest A-HA! moments the other day. I was listening to the Humans Being podcast and Sarah Parent was talking about power struggles with your children as a pendulum.

Think of the power struggles as a push and pull-pendulum goes one way then it goes the other way. If there is no push and pull the pendulum swings back and forth in smaller swings until it gradually will settle in the middle. If one side gives a big push the other side can't help but to pull back and then there is a period until it settles back in the middle again.

It made a lot of sense to me.

It's a short and sweet Unschool Monday post today but I'm sure you can find longer ones at Owlet's Unschool Monday linkup
