Do you mean the style and method, Similar to a classical education or have you found a curriculum?

The method or read the book. I have begun to read the the books and implement them in our schooling. My children are really enjoying it.

I definitely like it. I  have to keep reminding myself that a great many "great" people were not educated in our modern traditional way. I really like a lot of what the Thomas Jefferson/classical/Charlotte Mason methods have to offer and so I think that we will be a fusion of them as well as of my own ideas. How is it working for you?

I've heard many a horror story about it, actually. Just head over to the well trained mind forums and put it into the search bar.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

TJED isn't really comparable to classical or charlotte mason; it's basically another child led approach, leaning towards unschooling.

Me too! Really bad stuff. I do however appreciate the ideas behind the early childhood approach and the use of real literature. Beyond that, it's not my cup of tea.
