I think It really Depends on How your Child learns. WHat appeals to you Kid. I would be happy to discuss this further with you if you want. Please PM me if you wish.

We've used K12 for five years.  It's secular:


You first want to find out your child's learning style, then research curricula that fit that style, along with  your other educational goals.  K12 has been a great fit for us - it may not be for all.

well, right now im looking into what the options are and would like to explore those.  i have a friend who has gone through 5 or 6 curriculum for her dd but i dont know which ones she tried. 

i am starting out reading John Holt books and would just like to know what others are doing.  at this point babe is 2.  i dont want to have jump in from scratch when i decide to do anything "formally".


im also doing some research on "unschooling".
