If you don't want to homeschool, you don't have to. If I don't want to send my kids to a school where bullying isn't handled correctly & different learning styles are frowned upon & singled out as a disability, where they want to medicate my intelligent, creative children, just because the teacher is too busy, I don't have to. Isn't it a wonderful world?
I love child led learning! I think it is the best way to help children understand who they are and what their interests are at an early age. I also love that I choose how my kids are socialized instead of that being up to whatever dynamic/ecosystem is available in the particular school environment. I unschool my 7 year old and I unschooled my 15 year old up until 8th grade. He is at a Montessori high school now, which I consider a wonderful environment.
