How does one go about deschooling? My son will complete 2nd grade at the public school in 14 school days (Yes, he's counting down with his class). My other son is completeing Pre-K the same day- he already mentally checked out three weeks ago. So, what do we do to deschool the boys?? I forsee them watching too much TV unless I have a game plan (I'm pregnant and due inside the next 3 or so week). My oldest has already asked which camps he's going to this summer. I'm not sure what to do with that in general- we will send him to a few (Cub Scouts and VBS to start, maybe a few Y camps too). But other than that??? My son is 75% on board with Family School (his name for homeschooling next year) and I want to encourage him this summer in that front. I also want to homeschool year round (One of my favorite parts of homeschooling is elimintating that 'learnign curve at the beginnign of the year). DS1 loves to learn and has already asked to do math and science this summer. But that isn't deschooling. Or is deschooling more for kids with bad school experiences (His has been positive, but we are changing the environment anyway!). My yougnest is just tired I think, and after a few days of downtime and play time, I think he'll be ready to do whatever, maybe even start Family school by August.
I know there were a lot of questions in there, but I'm just not sure where to go with this deschooling thing.
