Turn Passion Into Homeschool High School Credit

Turn Passion Into Homeschool High School Credit
Let me demonstrate how to think through the process using the interest of the child and incorporating that into delight-directed learning.

Sometimes that will mean finding self-teaching curriculum and allowing them to learn without your help. But sometimes "not teaching" really means letting go! If your child loves something, and you see that it is your child's area of specialization, then you don't have to have control over it. Let your child experience and enjoy...
