Eastern Panhandle Regional Homeschool Conference.
We went to this conference two years ago and had such a good time we were anxious to come back.
From what I gather at this point, the parent holds onto the bike (a metaphor for schoolwork and life) for as long as needed but then lets go. It is then up the the child to take control and pedal for themselves.
Cecilia and I agreed that some people are born more "driven" than others, but I hope to glean what I can from her book to get out of the way and encourage each child to take control of their own destiny, helping them to help themselves get there. She says that this method is applicable to all kids in whatever setting they are educated.
