How to Choose a Homeschooling Curriculum

Are you eclectic?
Do you do "new" earth or "old" earth?
Do you swear by Charlotte Mason or are you more of a Montessori styled family?

Deciding to homeschool can be a difficult decision.  When you get tossed into the ocean of curriculum, you can feel even more confused!  Remember: each year can be different.  The joy of homeschooling is that you can tailor your experience to your family and to the unique educational styles and needs of your children.  Perhaps you start as a traditional homeschooler who moves into an unschooling model for a few years before settling on the classical approach.  Wherever you are in your search, there truly is a fit for every homeschooling parent and, most importantly, for every homeschooled child.  There is no one "right" way, and perhaps for your family, you find that a blend of two or more methods work best for you.
