Could you use an Unschooling Pep Talk?
How about every week?

The Unschooling Mom2Mom Podcast is published every Monday - a 5-10 minute themed discussion on all the topics that you might feel a little uneasy about. Hop on and get the reassurance you need to be successful at unschooling!

About Sue Patterson

Hello, Friends!   Thanks for checking out my Patreon page!

I've been helping other home educating families for decades now. Ever since we pulled my son out of public school in 1996, we've been talking about learning and parenting and unschooling (even when we weren't so sure about the word yet!) with anyone who was curious. So now the kids are grown and instead of retiring like most veteran unschooling mamas, I've decided to stick around! I have all sorts of tips and resources for those coming after me! I love what unschooling did with my own kids and I want you to have the family life I know is possible.

Volunteering, problem-solving, and creating resources is what I love to do! 

With that in mind, I founded Unschooling Mom2Mom with a few online friends back in 2014 - and now it has garnered a social media following of over 80K!! We've created a kind and inspiring place that helps families figure out what to do when school isn't working for them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest and YouTube. 

So here's a little bit about how I spend my day:
  • I'm homeschooling/unschooling coach for families who need group or 1:1 support as they venture out into this exciting unconventional world! I do a weekly coaching calls and live streams in my groups.  Joining here will give you access to these! Or we can set up a private coaching call here.
  • My Membership Group is a coaching group for those looking for more community - it's my favorite thing in my entire business! We talk every week - often multiple times - offering each other solutions and suggestions. I have decades of resources available to members that you won't find anywhere else - plus most of the Unschooling Guides are INCLUDED in your monthly memberhip! Join us! 
  • I'm a website creator. Our fabulous curated website has all the best unschooling writers, video-makers, podcasters linked. I know who's good and who's, umm, not. I'm adding to it all the time.
  • I'm a Weekly Podcaster! I offer a short 5-10 minute unschooling pep talk for anyone who needs it every Monday! 
  • I'm an Instagram enthusiast. I've been diving into IG, inspiring and encouraging families visually. I love creating new graphics to share and inspire you! @UnschoolingMom2Mom
  • I'm a Facebook fanatic. I answer questions from parents who join our huge Facebook groups. People can come to get solid answers to their unschooling questions from moms who are kind, compassionate, and most of all, remember what it was like to be new! Families who tried other homeschooling methods, or just can't seem to make unschooling work for them also come for advice and help. 
  • I'm a compulsive writer. I've blogged since 2007! I have a book: Homeschooled Teens: 75 Young People Speak about their Lives Without School. It's available in print and digitally. I also have a new ebook: Unschooling your Teens. 
  • I'm a digital creator. I have courses, videos, and PDFs to help unschooling families no matter where they are on their educational journey. My Unschooling Guides are incredibly helpful to families who want to strengthen their unschooling foundation.
  • I'm a featured speaker.I speak at conferences all over the country but also on podcasts or in magazines.
I want to continue to do ALL of this AND find innovative ways to help the bazillions of families who are streaming out of schools today (or out of homeschooling methods that drove them all nuts!) - and some are frantic to find a better life for their kids.

For instance, here are some of the things I will use your money for:
  • Website Hosting for UnschoolingMom2Mom, as this grows, so does the price. 
  • ConvertKit, a monthly expense for maintaining an email list and getting information out 
  • Thinkific is a platform to my course Jumping Into Unschooling - for new unschoolers, those considering unschooling, and those who feel "stuck."
  • Continued time answering questions for free & hosting Unschooling Mom2Mom and creating new resources.
  • A "virtual assistant" to help me with all the behind the scenes stuff. (THANK YOU!)
  • A Light and a Microphone to make the videos better. (THANK YOU!)

I want to invite you to hang out with me in here, supporting my endeavors and helping us reach more families so they too can have a wonderful unschooling life!

Your support - at ANY LEVEL - is helping those parents who desperately need a kind place to land, where they can get questions answered and learn more about how to unschool. I love the idea of being able to give back - unschooling was such a wonderful experience for my family! I want you to know about it so, if it's a good fit, you can have these awesome adventures too! 

This Patreon account,  my coaching site, and my Unschooling Mom2Mom website - give me platforms to share all the information I've learned over the past two DECADES! Your contribution here allows me to pay the bills and keeps the doors open for those moms who don't have any money to spare, but still want to know about unschooling. We're all Paying it Forward! .

Thank you so much for being actively involved in the unschooling community! I love forward to getting to know you better!

Also.... shhhh!
I want to find a way to host an Unschooling Mom2Mom forum that is over here - but doesn't break the bank. I'm working on this behind the scenes as I really am growing weary of the free-for-all that is Facebook. I can't see abandoning FB entirely, because that's how people will find us and I want to always offer something free for people to learn more about unschooling.

But wouldn't a private forum to ask a couple questions and get some calm response, be nice? Even at its own $3 level might be enough to make sustainable.
