We're Trendy Now!

http://www.parents.com/family-life/better-parenting/parenting-style/top-parenting-trends-2009/?sssdmh=dm17.359483&esrc=nwpcb29_09&email=#RegistrantIDx. I hope this link is able to opened. I just received this by e-mail via Parents Magazine. According to this article, it is now trendy for 2009 to homeschool! Parents, according to the article, are realizing that schools are subpar and are themselves able to teach their own children - by homeschooling and unschooling. (Yes, unschooling is mentioned by name!) Wow! I feel so honored that I'm trendy now! Seriously, though, I think this is a step in the right direction. At least people are realizing the value of home education!

Now back to our unschooling adventures!

It doesn't take you to the exact page, you need to scroll through to

Nice to hear we are in the hip crowd now! Having homeschooled since 1992, I have seen some wonderful changes. Of course the critics will always be critical. How there are those who think government controlled education is superior (especially after it's track record) just astounds me!

Sorry about that, April. I never even thought to post the exact page. I should have. Would have made it easier. :^(

Teri, I know what you mean. I hear the same criticisms of homeschooling with Taliesin and Nathanael as I heard when I was homeschooled (and I graduated back in '93). I agree it's astounding as to why people would still rely on the public school system.

Not really used to doing what considered 'in' - pretty cool really that they mentioned home/unschooling!!!
