Whether you are an educator or a parent, this book highlights not only the damage we are doing to children in the name of educating them, but also how things can be done differently. The excerpt is from her new book, Changing Our Minds: How Children Can Take Control of Their Own Learning. I jotted down notes on my phone when an idea came to me, and wrote little pieces about seeing my children’s learning in action because I knew that otherwise I would forget. You don't need to know anything about teaching to read and benefit from this book, but if you do it will make new connections between all the things you already knew. It is written for the growing number of parents who feel that ‘school’ is doing their children more harm than good.

If Dave didn’t think I was working fast enough, he would come and turn up the machine: thunk-thunk-thunk-thunk-thunk-squirt. We are socialised to believe that schooling is synonymous with education, but it's only one approach. Naomi Fisher's book, Changing Our Minds, shows us why and how we can use other ways of living, learning and sharing knowledge with children besides the usual method: Sit down. To be honest, I downloaded this one because it was the only one available on Audible and I thought I’d give it a go.I was just amazed at how much sense it makes and how differently we should be embracing the education of our children, especially those who are neurodiverse. Feeling like you have some control is more important than other factors, like how demanding your job is. Naomi expertly guides you through the wide world of learning, motivation, child behaviour, parenting culture, alternative schools and home education. Her work has featured in The Psychologist, The Green Parent, Juno, SEN Magazine and she has appeared on many podcasts including Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd.

Even when people work at the weekend, they tend to do it in their own time and in their own way, and therefore have increased autonomy as compared to during the week.Biography: Dr Naomi Fisher is a clinical psychologist who specialises in trauma, autism and alternative education. Unschooling is such a natural way for a child to live and thrive but is so against the grain for us adults who were schooled such that following this path can surface a lot of mental and emotional stuff for the parents to reconcile with. Tipping Points is delighted to publish the following excerpt from long time contributor Naomi Fisher. Whilst reading this book I have been recommending it to everyone who I meet within education who should have an interest in this topic.

I’d love to love this book but the absolutely uninformed bull snot of this chapter has delegitimized the rest of the book for me. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.Clear and logical points based on scientific evidence and psychological understanding that makes complete sense to me both rationally and intuitively. She is mother to two self-directed learners who were unschooled for 6 years, then attended a Sudbury-model school in Paris and now are members of the Self-Managed Learning College in Hove. Changing Our Minds is densely packed with studies and information from across cognitive psychology, biology and sociology yet woven together in a warm and conversational way. Really recommend to not just those interested in pursuing alternative forms of education for their children - but every parent, no matter how you may choose to educate your child.
