A very captivatingly, spot on written article. We never needed a deschooling period, like some people I know, as our 10 year old has never been in the system apart from 6 weeks in the summer of 2014. It was her wish to try it out so in true home ed nature I agreed – not until after 6 months though, haha. She soon asked to come back out and i happily de-registered her the next day. It so wasn’t what she expected and she got bored so quickly.
