Eh, not so much... I've homeschooled for17 years, never met anyone I would call successful at it.

Well the one woman on the show was seriously saying her 8 year old will "choose" what they want to learn? Don't see that working out well

Some of my friends have done it. One child had to start attending school (her oldest from her first marriage) and it has been a nightmare. He's very advanced at some things and very behind at others.

My parenting philosophy is to prepare my child for whatever his future holds. I do not believe unschooling is the way to do that for my child.

Not a philosophy I'd adopt, but to each his own.
