On this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling, The Informed Parent writes about letting children follow their interests.
“My grown son still has the photo in his office that a major railroad sent him when he
wrote them asking what the very fancy train was that occasionally sped by our house. They wrote back that it was the old “President’s Train” that was now used for executives to travel the country, and set a lovely 8 x 10 along with it. They had so many of those experiences with the librarian, a zookeeper, naturalist and others in the community they learned to seek out information and solutions from others when they needed to. I’ve seen them use those same skills very well as adults.”
