Do we sometimes expect too much from our homeschooling curriculum? Obviously it’s important. A crucial part of the Charlotte Mason philosophy is to give our kids a broad and generous education. A curriculum certainly helps me make sure that we get the proportions right.
But just because curriculum is a valuable tool, doesn’t mean that we have to follow it to a t. Instead, we need to consider our kids, our circumstances, even our location, and make a curriculum work for us. That’s exactly what I’ve set out to do this year. I talk all about it in the video below.
