Sure, your kid may be a math whiz, but do you know what her ambitions
and dreams are? Discover how to "draw out" your children's interests
on this week's edition of Home School Heartbeat with Mike Smith!

Mike Smith:
Shared activities are a great place to start on the road to getting to
know your children better. But if you really want to dig deeper, set
aside time to sit down with your children and discover what their
interests are--both academic and otherwise.

The first step is to just listen to what your children have to say.
Then, brainstorm practical ways for them to pursue the things they're
passionate about. If your daughter enjoyed physics this last year, she
could enroll in a community college course or a homeschool co-op to
pursue that interest further. If your son hates classical guitar but
loves singing, why not let him take voice lessons instead?

If you have high schoolers, it's especially important to start zeroing
in on their strengths so that they can discover if they love a subject
or a vocation as much as they think they will. If your son is
considering medicine as a potential career, see if he can volunteer at
a local hospital so he'll get a taste of what medicine is really like.
Even if your daughter's enthusiasm lies in an unlikely direction, such
as studying cloud formations, find ways to help her develop this
hobby. Who knows? One day she could be a meteorologist!

And until next time, I'm Mike Smith.
