I totally get the difference between eschooling and homeschooling now
I am an eschooler. I have been eschooling at least 1 child each year for the past 3 years. Last year I had 3, this year I started with 2 but found the eschooling too much for my PK kid. Deciding he was just too little still, we dropped him from eschool but continue to play school at home. I know this sounds crazy, but I let my children decide where they want to go (all 4 that are school age are still in elementary grades PK-3). Anyway, I have a friend who was also eschooling, but for her, it turned out to be a total mess! So, I encouraged her to drop her kids from the eschool, and now I am homeschooling her 2 as well as eschooling my one. I can completely see the difference now. I am really thinking that if any of mine choose to stay home next year, we will go the homeschool route instead of the eschool route. The freedom is AMAZING!
