A Moment with The Homeschool Minute~ by Todd Wilson – How do you pick curriculum?

If your kids like unit studies, but you don’t . . . then don’t use unit studies. If your kids like to read living books, and you do too . . . read living books. If you hate the math program you picked, then pick something else. If your best friend says, “You’ve got to use THIS curriculum because it is so wonderful and life changing,” but it makes you tired just reading through the teacher’s manual . . . then don’t use it.
You know you and your family better than any pencil-pushing-curriculum-expert or anyone else for that matter. So do what YOU like and what works for YOUR family.
One last thing: homeschooling is a process. We all started out using one thing and then changed as life changed. My wife loved one program with our first children, but got tired of it by the time she got to the younger children, so she changed. That’s normal and okay.
Oh, one more last thing: each child is different. You already knew that, but sometimes you need someone like me to remind you. The curriculum that worked so well with three of your children, just may not work with your fourth child . . . so don’t use it.
So ask for wisdom, use your noodle, and pick what makes everyone happy (or almost everyone).
courses you need at a cost you can afford.
