"Just as an FYI, there are a LOT more than 2 approaches to homeschooling. Those are basically the two ends of the spectrum, and there is a whole host of other methods in between."

You are right, I wasn't trying to suggest that one must choose one or the other, but it appears that my intent wasn't entirely clear. We use a curriculum as an outline, but we adjust it as required for the child. We like the "security" that the curriculum, in making sure we get to everything (diagraming sentences is probably a good exercise, but I wouldn't have thought of it myself), but we diverge where we see it isn't working.
