    VP literature guides or do something else?

    You could use readers without doing the questions, if he doesn't like the questions. Maybe narrating what he's read would be more enjoyable. Whatever the case, you want learning to be something he enjoys, and feels motivated by. Mosdos Press has literature. Christian Light Publications, and Bob Jones both have nice readers.

    Reluctant 6 yo boy curriculum help

    Mathematical Reasoning is a nice colorful math curriculum. Explode the Code or Jolly Phonics is nice for phonics. Abeka Science is nice for science. Great Science Adventures is another great idea for science. The student makes a mini book and does an activity. For Bible study there is Memory Press, which uses the Bible story book called The Story Bible. A Bible Promise book is great, or products from https://scripturememory.com/ or http://www.thywordcreations.com/ for Bible memory.

    Memoria Press or Sonlight or...

    The Simply Charlotte Mason plan should be enough academically, since they use other science and math curriculum in the higher grades.

    The absolute best homeschool curriculum

    The best curriculum is one that is relaxed, and free of high pressure. It is an environment that is enjoyable, and motivating. One way of keeping it stress free is to not schedule more than is easy to do in a day. Plan on the basics like Bible, Phonics, Spelling, and Math, then there is plenty of time to go at your own pace on the other subjects, and if not the child has still learned the basics.
