164: Discouraged

This week, I'm talking about:

  • How I'm feeling discouraged
  • The need to feel successful
  • A negative comment about technology and screentime
  • Letting go and moving on

I also share a story from my book, Radical Unschool Love, called The Beginning and End of Praise. 

Is it okay to praise our kids? Could praise be necessary, not only for our children but for us as well?

163: Time and Trust and Letting Go

This week, I'm talking about:

  • how time moves so fast.
  • making the most of our time with our kids.
  • not being anxious but trusting our kids will get to where they are meant to go.
  • how we have to let go of each stage of our lives.
  • our son Thomas and grief and birthday traditions.

I'm sharing two stories

  • Time and Trust (from my book Radical Unschool Love)
  • Letting Go of Another of Thomas' Places

I tried a new podcasting recording setup for this episode. Please ignore any imperfections. Yes, there are a few skipped words and a bit of breathy breathing and other strange noises, but I hope this recording is good enough to listen to. (How did Darth Vader get into my podcast?!) When I learn how to use Adobe Audition better, my podcasts will sound better!

162: Asking for Help

After a break, I'm back with a new episode!

 

This week, I'm discussing the following questions:

  • Where have I been?
  • Why did I record 3 versions of episode 162?
  • Can crisis points become turning points?
  • What changes am I making?
  • Do most of us think we can do everything all by ourselves?
  • Do we need social media to spread the message about our work?
  • Do we need more silence in our lives?
  • Are you willing to help me?

 

I'm also sharing two stories:

  • When We Reach Crisis Point (from my blog)
  • Sue Elvis: An Interview (from my book Radical Unschool Love)
