The Problem of Motivation & Unschooling

By Leo Babauta

One of the more difficult, and therefore more interesting, problems in unschooling is the problem of motivation.

In other words, unschooling is just like regular life (in fact, shh don't tell, but "life" and "unschooling" are the same thing!).

The problem that many unschooling families face is: if you don't force the kid to learn certain things in certain ways, that's all well and good, but what if the kid doesn't feel like doing anything? Can they just lay around and watch TV all day? What if the kid wants to do some things but isn't motivated to work hard on them?

So how to solve this problem?
