I have a new blog post over on Happy Healthy Family this morning.
Here is an excerpt:
My kids have never attended school in their lives. Nor do we “do school” at home. You’ll rarely find us around the table, pencils in hand, math and science books piled high. You’re more likely to find is in the woods or the creek, the kitchen or the workshop; our curiosity alight and full of a love of learning that was rare in my own childhood but a constant in my life today.
This might make you think that my answer the question above would be: The best education for your child is interest-led, project-based homeschooling! Obviously.
EXCEPT THAT IT’S NOT.
Because this is my family’s right path, right now. It has nothing to do with a singular “best” option or something that’s a good match for anyone else.
AND JUST LIKE HOT SAUCE OR HEAVY METAL, YOGA OR PET SNAKES, IT’S NOT FOR EVERYONE. IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE.
I’m over on Happy Healthy Family (the LüSa Organics Blog) talking about choices in education and following your child’s lead and your own heart.
You can find my thoughts here.
