Homeschool Blunder - Doubling Up!

Are you doubling-up?  Doing too much is a major cause for homeschool burn out.  Sure we want to produce well-educated kids, but doing a double amount of a subject may not be the answer.  Twice as much information can mean twice as much burn out with half as much education!

Here is a typical question I hear:
I ordered the grammar curriculum from Abeka during the homeschool conference this year before speaking with you.  Should I eliminate that if we are using the Latin Road to Grammar?

I'm SO glad you asked that question!  YES!  Please, please, please eliminate Abeka grammar while you are using Latin Road!  The Latin Road is a complete grammar program, and it has all the grammar that you need.  It will supplement your reading and writing perfectly, serving two purposes at the same time, with both English and Foreign Language.  One of the biggest problems I see from homeschoolers is doubling-up on subjects like English.  Using Latin Road for English Grammar PLUS another grammar curriculum would be giving your son two grammar programs.  It may be "fun" for some kids, but for most children doing double duty can cause burn out and even rebellion.
