Interest and attention

Some of the books and lessons are 0% interesting to my child. I have used ways to encourage her but some books she just doesn't care for. Did you encounter this? Anyone feel conflicting emotions about it? I encourage her curiosity and interest in other areas and feel unauthentic by forcing her to learn about things she's not necessarily interested in. Any insight?

I am surprised to hear that you are having such an issue with the interest level for your child. My daughters have yet to find a book they don't enjoy or a lesson which does not spark some level of interest. And we have used this curriculum for four years. I hate to point this out but there will be many things to learn in life that may not be 100% interesting. The goal may be more to work on motivation and perseverance. Two books which may be of interest to you: 1. Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, and 2. Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance. Both of these books discuss ways in which to motivate our children to learn and persevere. Incredibly important attributes for success in life.

Well, we do have different children so I'm not surprised at the difference in their interests and focus �� I'll check out those books.
