It’s not unusual for a homeschooled kid to have interests in areas about which their parent has no clue, skill, or talent. That’s no excuse for not nurturing their gifts or allowing them to explore their interests.
Particularly as kids hit the middle and high school years, it’s important to provide opportunities for them to develop their natural talents and gifts.
You never know what may lead to a future career. However, even if a kid’s interests don’t lead to their life’s calling, it could become an enjoyable hobby in adulthood.
Helping your child explore his interests doesn’t have to be an insurmountable hurdle.
