Mom of four Dayna Martin, 46, advocates "unschooling" and says her kids are future entrepreneurs who are caring and love learning.

Unschooling is a form of home-schooling, but contrasts with this form of education in that the children's education is not directed by a teacher and curriculum: in essence students learn only what they want to.

Dayna says she found the traditional schooling system "controling" and so encourages her kids Devin, 20, Tiffany, 18, Ivy, 14 and Orion, 11, to guide their own learning.
