Because there is no right or wrong way to homeschool, new homeschoolers often have a difficult decision to make as they figure out which homeschooling method is the best approach for their family.
For some families, homeschooling works best within a well-structured, goal-oriented routine. For others, spontaneity, flexibility, and experiential learning are key components to more successful homeschooling. Still others find an eclectic combination of methods to be their best approach. Whichever method or philosophy you choose, do your best to match your teaching preference with your child's unique learning style, and remember, don’t be afraid to try something new!
