#1: Our home is a home—a place of loving and learning—not a school.
#2: We are a family of learners—parents and children—making progress each at our own pace.
#3: Our practice is flexible—guided by a child’s curiosity, a parent’s broader knowledge of the world, and the unique opportunities that come our way.
#4: We plan ahead or we plan from behind, whichever serves in the moment.
#5: We coordinate academics with our children’s delights, passions, and skills. We are the seekers and finders of everyday magic.
#6: We take risks and experiment with methods, knowing we can double back any time to sure footing.
#7: Our life together is protected by our commitment to honesty, to emotional safety, to loving each other, and to creative problem-solving.
#8: We acknowledge challenges and face them bravely. We reach out to others, knowing that help helps.
#9: Our allegiance is to what’s right for our family, not any one homeschool method, community, or model.
