Do We all have trouble motivating our kids sometimes? I do!

And I've found the best way to motivate them to study something is for me to discover what they really enjoy.

For Joanna its manicures and make-up. Thru' this passion she's learning accountancy skills. What! Yes, she's opened her own 'salon' and has to keep accounts and learn some business skills.

With Samuel its animals. He keeps a fabulous diary, filled with photos, drawings and detailed accounts, lists, etc. of all the animals he's reared or rescued.

Let's not be quick to dismiss our kids passions to help them learn literacy etc. skills.
