Humans are born to explore and engage with the world. So why are we so determined to get in our children’s way?
When we leave the traditional education system behind we can choose to create a loving and supportive atmosphere that allows unschooling to take root and blossom in our home. That means strong and connected relationships where trust and respect run deep—both ways.
With more than a dozen years of unschooling experience, Pam Laricchia explains the four family characteristics that she discovered helped unschooling to thrive in her family. Her practical examples and stories may make all the difference in your life and the life of your children.
In Free to Live, you’ll discover:
- How to nurture your children’s innate curiosity
- How patience helps us see the world through our children’s eyes
- Why strong and connected relationships are so valuable for learning
- How to cultivate trust and why it’s the backbone of unschooling, and lots more!
Through its concise, easy-to-understand language, Free to Live explores the family characteristics that allow learning, and living, to flourish. Picking up from where Free to Learn left off, discover how to create a thriving unschooling environment in your home.

“Really enjoyed this short and sweet book. It has marvelous one liners and though I’m not an underliner, I found myself underlining on every page. I will definitely go back to it when I need some reminders or encouragement about unschooling. I especially loved what she wrote about having trusting relationships with teens.” ~ Goodreads review
“I was not familiar with Pam Laricchia’s writing until I had read her first book, and I have been very impressed. I would recommend reading Free to Learn first, as this book builds on concepts covered in that book. This book uses practical, day to day examples, which I understand and appreciate. Yes, perhaps for some the sweater story is considered simple, but, it is SO related to learning. If you understand the concepts that the author introduces in the first book, it makes sense. It is easy to transfer the authors illustrations to real life examples in your home, and I think that was the authors point. Personally I enjoyed the examples and was able to relate and able to start picturing my own lifestyle of learning alongside my children. This book is more than a book about unschooling, it is also about the way you relate to your children. I believe it would benefit any homeschooler, or parent, to read this book, as it re-emphasizes the importance of the relationship between a parent and a child in the learning process. I plan to reread this book, it is rich and full of gems. Give yourself some time to absorb it before rushing into unschooling.” ~ Amazon review
