“Cherry pick” the best of other people’s learning styles and adapt them to fit your custom 10,000 hours of talent building for your child. Because you homeschool, you can afford to pick and choose only the best and thereby avoid mediocrity right from the beginning. To do this you have to accept that it is rare to find in one individual all the learning patterns and examples you need to copy, so be prepared to get aggressive about acquiring tips and tricks from many different sources. One family may excel at extracting learning opportunities when out in nature while another may excel at mathematical learning techniques. Copy those friends ONLY in those areas of learning where they excel.
