Have you ever found yourself struggling with the following questions:
Are we doing okay?
Are we doing the right thing?
Is this going to work?
Questions will be more if you tend to compare yourself and your children with other people.
It is easy to fall into the trap of comparing to be able to measure your progress.
Only then will you know if you are really making progress and doing the right thing!
It is when you measure, that you start to make changes (to your schedule, your home, the curriculum, the routine etc.), adapting and doing your own thing to suit your style.
It is then that you start doing eclectic homeschooling.
It happens to most homeshoolers over the years, since no curriculum is the perfect one-size-fits-all answer to your child's individual needs.
In the following pages you will find a very simplified process broken down into 7 easy steps that will help you to continuously improve your homeschool.
This process is something I have developed over the years as I have applied it personally. An article on this was featured on the frontpage of The Old Schoolhouse magazine one time, have a look here: The 7 Step process to homeschool improvement
If it will help you to better understand the concepts , visit My eclectic homeschool way and see how I’ve done it my way!
Remember that every family is unique and the outcome for each family is unique.
It may also be useful to read about Child Development phases for information on what is important for each phase.
