We are often asking an almost good question…same here. It really isn’t a matter of “How to homeschool?”, but really, “How do YOU homeschool?”Every family has a lot of moving parts, so it’s going to be unique to you. Looking for the ‘perfecct’ curriculum isn’t the way to go. Instead, think about principles instead.Here are 7 Principles we think are vital:

1. Focus On Growing A Learner

2. Think Skills, Not Knowledge

3. Don’t Vote With The Kids

4. Aim For Happy Adults

5. Find Some Fans

6. Follow A Pattern

7. Stop Doubting

So, there you go. The video has more detail, but this is a good start 🙂
