125: Where We Go Our Own Way with Saira Siddiqui
One of our favorite Instagram follows is here! Saira Siddiqui (@confessionsofamuslimmom) is a perspective-shifting writer and digital parent educator. If you haven’t met Saira yet, allow us to introduce you. Pull up a chair (and pull out a notepad!)—you’ll want to give this conversation your full attention and catch every bit of Saira's wisdom. Listening to Saira will challenge your ideas about education and embolden you to go your own way with whatever method of learning and living your family embraces.   In this episode: Saira Siddiqui is a Digital Parent Educator, advocating critically thinking, anti-bias, self-directed education (unschooling), and stronger emotional health for parents and children: "The goal of education is critical thinking.” We talk a lot about unschooling and what it means to Saira: “Unschooling and self-direction isn’t just how we learn, it’s a mindset. It’s a lifestyle.” We touch on deschooling ourselves and unlearning our educational backgrounds, including questioning the idea that work and home have to be separate: “What are my passions? What am I pursuing? What am I contributing?” Saira also explains how unschooling changed her own path: “It wasn’t until I really truly embraced unschooling that my own trajectory took off.” Plus, we talk about the value of self-direction in learning: “A lot of what makes us successful as adults has to be very intrinsic.” Lastly, Saira shares about their family’s choice to live abroad: “When you live in a place, you see people for how they see themselves, not how you see them.”  Connect with Saira on Instagram, Facebook, and her website.   Get the Extended Interview! Patrons get our extended interview where we talk about some of Saira's favorite books (your TBR pile is about to get a lot taller!). We also get her take on the Homeschool Unrefined signatures: "What We Don't Do" and "Giving Ourselves Credit"–join now to listen!   Speaking of Patreon...
