Places to Visit in Beijing: Tanzhe Temple

In this video, Lydian introduces the Tanzhe Temple. As an 11 year old, she thinks the round doors look like the one’s you’d see on a hobbit house.

Though John and Jennifer were still homeschooling, or “worldschooling” Lydian when she was 11, they learned to loosen their grip and let Lydian just have her own experiences as she grew older. Instead of focusing so much on teaching facts about places, worldschooling became more and more about teaching Lydian to learn from her own experiences, which she did (graduating with a college degree at age 17). Seeing the circular doors at the Tanzhe Temple as “hobbit house doors” is totally legitimate, even though hobbit houses are fictional. Worldschooling isn’t about multiple choice options or even fill-in-the-blank. Rather education is an ongoing essay-question.
