    I have found that when a child has creative talents, it seems that they will often be missed in school (Australian context). We have a very static idea of what talents are of value and I think that schools in general need to get better at allowing kids to express what they know through their area of strength, rather than always relying on writen tasks for example. We seem to get confused about what is being assessed.

    Having my own interests is something I have focused on a lot since starting homeschooling as it is really important to get me time outside of schooling, parenting, and work. I took up horse riding lessons 2 years ago, which was something I had enjoyed as a child and then given up because we lack of opportunity (moved to a city and my mum could not afford lessons). It is also a shared interest with my daughter (she attends pony camp in the holidays and we volunteer together at therapy riding sessions for 4 hours one morning every week).

    I do struggle with exposing my daughter to a range of extracurriculars as she has anxiety and likes routine. So to get her to try new things is quite hard and she prefers to stick to the activities that she knows.

    We have been homeschooling for 3 years and strengths/interests is a big part of our homeschool. At the end of each term my daughter fills in a basic worksheet about the things she enjoyed and what she would like to do for the next term. Her reading, social studies, science, art, foreign language, and music are always interest-based. And each day, she has choice over what she wants to do for each learning area.
