I've been thinking about goals and education, and about the role of unstructured play. Does anyone else feel slightly guilty about unstructured play? My deepest impulse is to provide as much material as possible (things for crafts and building and exploring) and then let them do whatever they like with it, but I always feel a slight edge of guilt about not doing formal teaching. This is a constant source of internal tension. So far Nat especially seems to love it, and neither boy takes direction especially well, but I feel like I'm inadequate for not following them around correcting their play and making suggestions. Which is something I'd hate doing.
