I don't have a set approach, so ecclectic!

Eclectic Approach

My homeschooler will be 3 years old next month.

We identify as unschoolers because we are child-led with their interests, they learn much better and retain more if they are learning what they want to know. Lemonade tastes better if you're thirsty!

But we use a lot of homemade unit studies for our school and we do have curriculum too.

I put eclectic.  Although we are really ~ child led, Montessori, Waldorf, unschoolers...we sort of just do what feels natural, I guess.  That probably doesn't make any sense, but it does in my head!!

I'll be homeschooling two of our children (one son and one daughter) why the other kids go to regular school.   It'll be a mix of unit studies and school-homeschooling.  I don't think that online schooling/charter schooling counts as real homeschooling because your kid is still in public school being taught by teachers and not the parents. I always viewed homeschooling as the mother teaching her children.

We are Charlotte Mason in the morning, and child led unschoolers in the afternoon.

we are registered w/ a homeschool academy (for records/transcripts/support) but free to choose what curriculum we use, so use a mix of publishers and approaches, based on each child's needs. We are finishing 12th (yay!), 9th, 6th, 4th, 1st and preschool.

I feel the same way. We do unit studies mostly.

Quoting dusk90:
