I'm curious to know if any of you are unschooling your high schoolers? DS14 has a multitude of issues, not the least of which is a mood disorder. When he plays a major part in decision-making, he's more cooperative. Lately, I've been wondering if I let him "drive" his course of learning, would he incur less stress and regain his love of learning.
In regard to unschooling, are you required to satisfy your state's core standards (I know that each state is different)? If so, do you allow your HS'er to pick and choose their explorations as long as they're within the range of what's expected at certain grade levels?
I'm not sure I'm even asking the right questions, so please forgive me. This idea, as it applies to my DS, just struck me this morning as a possibility.
All advice would be greatly appreciated! :)
