My husband's and my educational experiences were number 1. I was a public school success, getting all A's in honors classes and never getting into trouble. I was bored, depressed, and totally suppressed. My husband thrived in a Waldorf school but was still relatively depressed (more due to family issues). We thought we'd go with a Waldorf school.
Then as my general lifestyle views changed and grew--I realized any kind of school would clash with our values. I want my kid outside-- A LOT. I want him to be a part of the world, daily life, running the household. And I want him to be at least mostly free to follow his own passions during the day. We will not be unschoolers exactly, especially after he's 8, but there will be A LOT more freedom in our homeschooling then in a school setting. A LOT more. And last but not at all least, I want our family and our home to be our center, not just where we are in the evenings and part of the weekends.
So he's only 4 and we just live--no schooling in any form. But we'll be something in the realm of unschoolers with Waldorf lifestyle that transition to a Charlotte Mason and later a Classical approach to homeschooling.
