From HSLDA’s Mike Farris:

We spent some time with several veteran homeschool speakers this weekend, and there is a troubling trend they are seeing—moms who are just burned out on homeschooling. You’re saying, Well, that’s nothing new. But they are seeing this burnout in moms who have not been homeschooling that long. The most common connection between these homeschooling moms appears to be a highly structured homeschool curriculum or program.
Pursuing a “delight-directed” teaching style will motivate students to learn on their own – and will take the pressure off the parents.
