Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see – Neil Postman

Current research projects

I’m currently investigating the links between parenting philosophies and decisions to home-educate in Australia. The study is looking at whether home-education choices are related to parenting philosophies. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether parents who identify as following a child-led parenting style (such as attachment parenting, continuum parenting or natural parenting) choose to home-educate because of their beliefs about parenting.

If you would like some more information, or want to participate, please contact me. Alternatively, please have a look at my pozible.

This project is considered low-risk has been given approval by the human ethics review board in the Faculty of Education at QUT. Its approval number is 1200000699. For information on the ethics process, please click here.

    Hi Rebecca, I just heard your interview on ABC radio and would be interested in talking to you about Unschooling. I have been Unschooling my children for 10 years.
