Introducing: Learning as a Family (LaaF)
The Learning as a Family program
This program seeks to provide clear and reasoned principles that help us make sense of how human beings actually learn. In understanding these principles we are better equipped to create a family environment that encourages learning and whose defining features are love, curiosity, and playfulness. This program also seeks to show that force, coercion and manipulation are counterproductive and not needed for real learning to occur. A further central aim is for this program to help you create an environment that fosters your child's autonomy in a healthy way and gives your children confidence and courage to engage in the world in a meaningful way as they grow.
Discover the research on how human beings learn and what this will mean for the way that you educate your children. Find out what learning through play actually means and how it can be achieved practically.
Whether you value reading, writing and maths or whether there are other family values you wish to pass on. Understand the principles behind how this can best be achieved.
Understand and discuss why our society thinks the way it does about education, children, schooling and parenting. The key to changing the future is understanding the past and present.
Discover the principles as to how children can move from dependence to independence. Discuss options for continued learning as children become independent whether this involves, work, apprenticeships, tertiary education (university or polytech), entrepreneurship, and/or starting a family of their own.
Understand the principles behind the social interactions of children and how socialisation can be achieved outside of school.
Discover how you can make learning a fun win-win situation for everybody involved without using coercion or force. Make learning more enjoyable and easy and with less stress and worries.
