That's beautiful! He sounds like a great example for his siblings too! I can't wait to see what mine grow to enjoy and do by that age.I would love to hear about your 5 other blessings, maybe when you have time on the discussion group. :)

Hey Ixchel! Nice to meet you. That's a beautiful profile pic!We started out the same way, except that my husband was more game than I was. Now she's seven, and it's been really good for her. She's tried school twice, but it broke all of our hearts, I was glad she chose to stop. Such a strange penitentiary!

Hey mama! I knew there would be a bunch of us in here! Have you had dreads the whole time you've been a mother? Did you always know you'd unschool?

I love that! We meet the neatest homeschooled people! I just learned that the youngest prof at MIT was homeschooled. :)

I'm looking for community, not negative opinions. Your fears are common, but unfounded. Homeschooling isn't a great fit for all people for sure, and it's best that we all can choose. I'll respond to a few of your fears just bc I am passionate about what we've learned and I love to share!Socialization is the most common criticism, yet it is one of the reasons we choose to hs. I love that my kids have a rich social life with people of all ages, and in many different capacities. They have opportunities for longer uninterrupted free play with kids they choose themselves based on common interests or complementary natures. They learn to lead and help younger kids, and to feel confident speaking to people older than them.Academically, it can be a beautifully tailored experience. My daughter is reading 4 grades above her level and is average in other areas. Independent learning works great for her! We also have coops and group learning opportunities, but best of all, nature and museums, elders, travel.Lastly, I love homeschooling bc it is a healthy choice physically and spiritually. They can eat fresh nourishing foods all day, get lots of time outside, and move their bodies often while they're learning. Boys in particular learn best while moving.Before we started, I thought it was an awful choice too, to be honest! But my experience parenting, and my research, and what I learned from parents who walked this path before us gave us courage to try, and I'm grateful!And....SE said almost the same exact thing in a much more enjoyable read. :)

Hi! I'm wondering how many homeschooling or unschooling parents are in this community? We do relaxed child-led hs. It seems similar to growing dreads - providing the right environment and trusting natural development.
