How do you help your children to maximize their strengths?
First you have to spend time with your kids to figure out who they are; you have to tune into their personality. Mike, the host of 2 Cent Dad, is homeschooling their 4 kids so he gets to see their progress very closely. He can see that while one kid might be better at math, the other might be better at reading. It doesn't make any sense to force them all into the same track. Forcing kids to do something only creates more conflict and barriers. Instead, if you can figure out what your children excel in and encourage that, allowing them to self-pace their learning. You will be surprised how far they could take it.
