    Default I want to start homeschooling when kids are in highschool

    Totally against homeschooling, particularly for secondary levels, my husband can't read or write because he was homeschooled. Your husband should get a say in my opinion without being dismissed. Un schooling in later years doesn't even make sense, there's no way they will get into uni.

    I have looked into Steiner and Montessori education. Dp went to a Steiner school during primary school. I don't have anything against them. We can't afford it though. Especially with four children.
    There is a highschool that is an hour away from us that offer Montessori education. It's a public school. But it's zoned.

    What do your children aspire to be? If they need to attend university I think un schooling is definitely not the way to go.
    The blatant disregard for your husbands wishes seems sad to me.

    I know people that went to school who can't read and write...

    And he's dismissing my opinions etc too by not listening. I do understand his (and others) concerns.

    No it is not relevant if he has a hand in raising them.

    And what about my wishes? My kids wishes? They aren't even his kids!

    does he regard your 3 eldest as his? As in are you a team when it comes to the children and parenting?

    I don't think it is relevant. You can't choose to be a family for some of it and just do what you wish with "your" children when you want.

    Also many PP have mentioned uni etc. What are your thoughts on that? I think it fair to say if you unschool then they won't be going to uni etc.

    Wow, I hope your husband never reads this. I would leave my husband if his argument to something I was uncomfortable with was "They're not your kids".

    If he is helping you raise them in HIS home, yes they are his.
