Want Passionate Kids?

It's always nice to find nonhomeschooling researchers who agree with me. I just ran across this article at msnbc.com called "Want Passionate Kids? Let them be." The point being to let your kids follow their interests without pressure, and they will find their passions. Nice.

Thanks for the reminder - it's good to remember this! Helps when I feel overwhelmed about not 'doing' enough :-)

yes, I agree with this. I home school my four oldest kids who are on there own now. They have jobs that they like because of the passions that they had growing up.

I will see what happens with the last 5. I know my second youngest right now wants to own a restaurant. She plays restaurant with her siblings that are home during the day. All the way down to the restaurant tabs.

Hi, I just wanted to say thanks. I have been following and receiving your newsletters for a while now, and wanted to say thank you for the inspiration! I started my first blog, and because of Valentines its about love.

So, very true! My oldest still isn't quite sure what direction he will take, but my youngest knows for certain and is following his passion.

Glad to see you posting again. :)

Thanks so much for linking to this article. I believe with all my heart that all kids have the capacity for brilliance. Have you ever read Resa Stiendel Brown's "A Call to Brilliance"? I'm so excited to go to four of her workshops in the middle of March at the In-Home Conference in St. Charles, Illinois.
