Avoid This At All Cost!

Uncategorized Oct 24, 2022

I wanted to write a blog post today to bring to light a mistake many homeschoolers have been making, despite trying their best not to. 

Are you ready? 

Here's the thing. 

When parents decide to homeschool, they assume they need a curriculum for every subject.

And that is when they commit this grave mistake that YOU must avoid at all costs: Adding unnecessary busy work from curriculums that want you to perceive the value in their consumable or non-consumable materials that are both costly and time-consuming! 

You HAVE to avoid this at all costs because:


  • It can often be unnecessary spending on materials that will end up in the trash after use or on the shelf, taunting you for wasting money.
  • Thinking that learning comes only from the curriculum will keep you shopping for the best and constantly comparing.
  • You will miss out on the best English literature that silently begs you to serve as the teacher as it sits quietly and lonely in the public domain or shelves. 


Otherwise, it will cost you money, time, and stress.

Before a tsunami happens, early warning sirens start ringing to inform citizens of the upcoming tsunami so they can run for their lives.

Consider this email your early warning siren! 

I am talking about the Robinson Curriculum book list in today's video and how it can be the curriculum for multiple subjects.

But what if your kids find books boring?

Here's another mistake. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Don't discard this way of learning and go back to consumable curriculums because it must mean it won't work for you. A few simple tweaks could make ALL the difference in this sustainable homeschooling method.
