A homeschooling family is visiting our church- and 2 of their boys (in the 4th and 5th grade age bracket) went to the boys missions classes tonight. They can't read, and their mom was worried how the leaders would react, etc. After class, I talked to the leaders, who were, understandably, astonished and taken back by the fact that the boys can't read yet. (My son just graduated out of that particular class, and we have always homeschooled, but he reads extremely well- so the leaders were completely at a loss as to what was going on.) I have heard of unschooling/life skills/etc, but don't have any websites that explain the reasoning behind parents waiting to teach their kids to read. I did explain to them that some homeschoolers do this, but I'd realllllllllly like to be able to send them something concrete, so that they will have more of an understanding as to this families schooling choice.
I'm hoping that someone can help me out with websites, etc, so I can send them on to the leaders. If I understand it more, I can help explain it to others!

Many thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
