Growing a Mind
Brains adapt. We know this from the research. The plasticity of the brain means that we can shape how we use our minds. Our brains adapt to influences, experiences, and materials that we consume and enjoy (or fear).
To grow a mind suited to homeschooling, shape your child’s mind toward curiosity and insight. Their brains need lots and lots and lots of encounters with attractive opportunities to:
- grow their skills,
- test their ideas,
- and explore this amazing world we call home.
Learning can be pleasurable and effective at the same time.
If you’re new to homeschooling, this is a paradigm shift (a brain chemistry change) for you too! Take it slow.
- and adapting.
Your mind will join you on the journey.
