There are many widely varying approaches to homeschooling, which can make choosing an appropriate homeschooling style a daunting task, especially for newer homeshoolers. It is important for parents to choose a homeschooling style that fits their parenting and teaching preferences, as well as their children’s learning style. To get an idea of what techniques will ultimately fit their real world needs, parents may find it helpful to research and even try “test runs” with various homeschooling resources or methods.

In homeschooling, it’s important for parents to be flexible, realizing that one style may be appropriate for one child but not for another. Then too, as children grow, learn, and mature, homeschool styles and strategies may need to change as well.
