They took a poll on the show, and most people voted that homeschooling was the best form of education. Thanks for the video!

Oh yeah, you might like the Education Forums with information about homeschooling and unschooling.

I'm a 7 year home educator--the Charlotte Mason method primarily. I try to avoid textbooks and workbooks in the early years especially.

I had no idea unschooling was this child-centered. I'm not judging your choices, but I would like to recommend that at very least, you instill in those children a strong work ethic (because nobody *wants* to file their taxes, or draw up the will, or 100 other dreaded tasks of adulthood) and a sense of respect for you and ultimately--others. The snapping, whining and sulking will only grow with them--into a big fat stalk of rebellion and self-destruction--if you don't cut it off as a bud.

Children will not learn character all by themselves; you're going to have endeavor to teach that to them. The bible is an excellent place to start...and end, for that matter.

Blessings to you and yours...
