Delight-directed learning, or interest-led learning, can be a beautiful way to homeschool your children. It gives us the chance as parents to become students of our children and learn what makes them tick. Delight-directed does not mean forsaking the traditional reading, writing and arithmetic. It means broadening your framework and allowing time in your year to camp out in certain subjects. Lead with curiosity and learn to think outside the box. Homeschooling can be so much more than school at home—it can be so redemptive, so fun and packed full of amazing memories with our kids.
