2. Homeschooled children who grow up in a stimulating and enriched
environment surrounded by family and friends who are generally
interested and interesting, will learn all kinds of things and
repeatedly surprise you with what they know. If they are supported in
following their own passions, they will build strengths upon
strengths and excel in their own ways whether that is academic,
artistic, athletic, interpersonal, or whichever direction that
particular child develops. One thing leads to another. A passion for
playing in the dirt at six can become a passion for protecting the
natural environment at 16 and a career as a forest ranger as an
adult. You just never ever know where those childhood interests will
eventually lead. Be careful not to squash them; instead, nurture them.
