Parents who are deeply invested in their children's education can be hard on themselves and their kids. When exhausted parents are living the day-to-day grind, it can seem impossible to muster enough energy to make learning fun or interesting. How do parents nurture a love of learning amid childhood chaos, parental self-doubt, the flu, and state academic standards?
In this book, Julie Bogart distills decades of experience--homeschooling her five now grown children, developing curricula, and training homeschooling families around the world--to show parents how to make education an exciting, even enchanting, experience for their kids, whether they're in elementary or high school.
Enchantment is about ease, not striving. Bogart shows parents how to make room for surprise, mystery, risk, and adventure in their family's routine, so they can create an environment that naturally moves learning forward. If a child wants to pick up a new hobby or explore a subject area that the parent knows little about, it's easy to simply say "no" to end the discussion and the parental discomfort, while dousing their child's curious spark. Bogart gently invites parents to model brave learning for their kids so they, too, can approach life with curiosity, joy, and the courage to take learning risks.

Her approach to homeschoolingand to parenting in generalemphasizes a spirit of adventure and camaraderie, placing relationship at the center of a familys educational journey. This is the guidebook I wish Id had when I was starting out."
Melissa Wiley, author of Fox and Crow Are Not Friends
"Success in homeschooling is more about mindset than method, and relationship than academic minutiae. Julie Bogart unpacks what this looks like for her in powerful and practical ways that will inspire you to personalize your own homeschool journey."
Heather Haupt, author of Knights in Training
"In The Brave Learner, Julie captures the essence of learning. Homeschooling is not about the schooling or even the home, but rather, its about peopletheir stories, hopes, needs, opportunities, communities, and future. The Brave Learner emphasizes this beautifully by moving between the vision and practice of homeschoolingnot an easy transition to make. The book is a worthy read for any parent, whether they homeschool or not."
