It's amazing how cliquish homeschoolers can be. Now I'm curious what the particular curriculum was. I loved this post.

I wholeheartedly agree. It is one of the reasons I took so long to say we unschool. I don't need the negativity from those who don't this we are unschoolish enough. In the end I decided to roll with the label for the positives it gives; finding a community, quickly explaining our approach, etc but I still feel wary. Loved this read, thanks x

Thanks Kirstee, love that you have found your happy comfortable place within your home ed journey. That's really all it is about isn't it!

Well written article :)I do believe there are certainly ways of educating children that are more effective than others, but I also believe that each child will respond differently to different methods/curriculums. As home educators, we have the chance to help our children learn in the best way they can.. helping them to grow strong.

This is very good and so true. I call myself an "eclectic" homeschooler because I draw from whatever works well for us. :-)

What a shame that you were treated so harshly by other homeschoolers for asking a question! I still like to say we're "eclectic" homeschoolers because we do a mix of whatever works and I don't want to be pigeonholed into a particular brand, as you say.

That has been our parenting motto since my first was born! We do what works, until it doesn't work, and then we do something else :) It is how we have responded to people's questions (and judgement!) about everything from sleep, discipline, and to education!
