That is my most precious gift that I will give my daughter. Except, it is not so much a gift as it is refraining from stealing something from her that is rightfully hers. I will not steal away 15,000 hours of her precious childhood. I refuse to subject her to the 15,000-hour prison sentence that is K-12 schooling. She will be free. Free to play, free to explore, free to learn on her own terms. For all the joy she gives me, it’s the least I could do.
