Well, I sort of consider us an "unschooling family", tho' we are rather eclectic in approach(DS likes some degree of structure, such as assignments in math/English, regular "field trips", etc
, whereas mostly we just go about life, go places, do stuff, and encourage his interests. So we DO do some schooling type stuff, but by request
I "started" a homeschooling group here sev. mths back, but of course, most we have met via it are "homeschoolers"(and most religious), not Unschoolers.(The unschooling group near us is not very near us; too much driving, etc.) And I continue to have the nagging suspicion that most who responded desire a more structured group( whereas I had in mind more of a social network
yet to see where that goes.
Sometimes I doubt our choice, but mostly I realize it is the best for us(in all ways, incl. "academically"). And as the kids get older, they will be allowed to choose to "go to school" or not. But until they reach more maturity/ability to rationally deal with the many issues out there, we wil not be just "throwing them out there". Kim
