    I started homeschooling in 2018. Kiddo was 6, did one year of public school K first. Ugh. Started "eclectic", and at this point am basically unschooling with wildschooling tendencies. I try to get us out as much as possible and clearly nature is an amazing classroom.

    I put my kids in Montessori - after that, it all went to hell with the bullying etc - the school work was so easy, my one son spent second grade just reading books because he already knew everything - the Montessori program is the end all be all in education IMHO - the kids are treated with respect, offered choices on what they want to work with that day - and most times don't even require a teacher because the materials themselves are self teaching - they figure out rules themselves and because of that, they remember it forever - for instance, if you look at rat, it is a soft a but add an e (rate) and it is a long a - do it enough times, and you learn the rule... :)

    Also, the program takes into account the growth periods of the child - like adolescents are just given a farm to manage - practical studies because the kids are so hormonal it is like bucking nature at that time to stuff more info down their throats... at least the middle school my kids went to started at 9:00 so the kids could sleep some more - as they grow like weeds during that time -
