How Can We Best Nurture in our Children a Love of Learning?

     Actually, I'm asking the question because, as a homeschooling mom, I'm trying to figure it out for myself.  I know each of you have your own ideas, thoughts, and insights.  Please share in the comments section below so we can all learn from one another.  Thanks!



  1. Have an interest - even develop a passion - for what they love. My boys are into Roblox. But - They want to learn graphics and advertising and sales. So - we spend time nurturing those desires.
    One thing a coach told me - was to always praise. Praise honestly through the whole learning experience. Then, Only find ONE thing to critique - and critique in a way that helps them find a way to do it better. So - the boy writes a poem or note to grandma - Let it go out the mail. Maybe ask if he remembers that the first letter of each sentence gets a Cap. Little by little they will want to change the one thing at time. And as homeschoolers - that's what we have - Time. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing, Angie! Great ideas.
