We’ve homeschooled for a grand total of 12 years, and we’ve tried every style, philosophy and type of homeschooling you can think of. In 2004, we pulled our then 2nd and 3rd graders out of public school. We did it without thinking, and without considering the huge responsibility that came with our choice. It was disastrous.
