Eclectic Homeschooling Profiles

Eclectic Homeschooling Profiles600

While there are many homeschoolers who subscribe primarily to one specific educational philosophy, most tend to be somewhat or very eclectic in their approach.  Eclectic homeschooling involves picking and choosing various approaches and materials to find a mix that works for your own family.

Over the past month I have been sharing interviews with 16 different eclectic homeschooling families.  There is no handbook that stipulates what eclectic homeschooling should look like.  Eclectic homeschooling should look different from family to family because each family is unique and the different philosophies and methods will mesh differently based on each family’s needs.

Take a peek into some eclectic homeschools and enjoy the uniqueness of each family’s journey.  If you are considering meshing different philosophies or materials into something unique to your family, take some inspiration from these families who have made homeschooling fit their lives.

  1. Homeschooling is so flexible, it really can fit any lifestyle. I also love how it changes over time. My only problem is how quickly the years seem to be flying by! 🙂

  2. I love the idea of homeschooling but how do I do this if I have a 9-5? is homeschooling only for families or mother/father that can afford to stay home and teach their kids?

      It is doable for working families as well. I used to work full-time and homeschooled during a few hours each day. Some spend time on weekends or evenings to homeschool. Working parents can homeschool, but it may require thinking outside the box.
