Linda Dobson Talks

with The Unplugged Mom

On April 29, 2011, The Unplugged Mom, a.k.a. Laurette Lynn, aired the interview she conducted with Parent at the Helm’s creator, Linda Dobson, some days earlier.

Microphone Linda DobsonLaurette did a great job asking questions. The hour flew by as it feltĀ  very much like talking with a friend over coffee about mutual interests and the well being of children across the country and around the world. The interview covered a wide variety of aspects of home education, including “the homeschool continuum,” a concept Linda created and shared in her book, Homeschooling The Early Years: Your Complete Guide to Successfully Homeschooling the 3- to 8-Year-Old ChildHomeschooling. Linda’s research of a sampling of homeschool families revealed that, by and large, families tended to move about “a line” that has school-at-home on one end, and unschooling at the other, depending on the children’s needs and the family’s circumstances. She also found that people tended to move toward less structure, away from the school model, the longer they were living the homeschooling lifestyle.
