Summary

Do you need parenting advice on how to inspire your child to love learning? Whether you homeschool, or send your kids to public or private school, this is essential listening for your situation.
Why? Because schooling has become a disaster. Your child's interests and uniqueness are disregarded, and structured curriculum and standards like Common Core place them on a conveyor belt that treats all children the same. This system crushes a child's curiosity. Your child deserves better!
There is a better way: one that ensures your child sees learning as a joy and provides you, the parent, with a much less stressful way to educate and empower your son or daughter. In this book, Connor Boyack shares the exciting philosophy and empowering day-to-day steps involved in passion-driven education.
A child's curiosity and natural desire to learn are like a tiny flame, easily extinguished unless it's protected and given fuel. This book will help you as a parent both protect that flame of curiosity, and supply it with the fuel necessary to make it burn bright throughout your child's life. Let's ignite our children's natural love of learning!

It makes me cry

To think that I have homeschooled so many years and missed out on so many opportunities to ignite my children’s passion driven education. It makes me want to cry to think of all these children in the public schools who are learning to hate education. I fear I have to some degree caused my own children to hate learning. But that is going to change. We will do more unschooling and focus on their passions. I have read and done what I can to follow a Thomas Jefferson education model. But my children often get bored with the reading and are not listening when I read. I have tried to follow what I thought was best, but Connor has opened my eyes to the fact that I need to have faith in my children’s ability to find their own passions and to allow them to be anything! Not just what I see as educational. I need to have faith that I will be able to figure out how to help turn their seemingly uneducational passions into an amazing path of discovery. There is so much we can learn about everything out there. There is so much we just don’t know. Thank you Connor for helping me see in such a short book how to help my children and myself. I am in tears.

Good principles in action

Any additional comments?

I love the principles of love, freedom, learning, empowerment, trust and faith expressed in Passion-Driven Education. Boyack also provides case-studies which prove the efficacy of those principles. It's inspired me to more seriously pursue my own passion-driven education and provide the right environment and guidance for my children to learn and grow. My wife is excited to read it now that I'm done.

Reading this little gem reminded me of the sentiments expressed by Albert Einstein:

"Curiosity is a delicate little plant that, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom."

"I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."

"Play is the highest form of research."

"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education."
