157: Fearing Our Kids Will Fail

This week, I'm discussing the following questions:

  • Do things sometimes seem like they'll never change?
  • Is 'grinned' a fabulous word?
  • Do we notice and worry about things that relate to ourselves that others don't notice?
  • Do our fears for our kids get in the way of encouraging them to do the things they enjoy?
  • Can our fears deprive our kids of joy?
  • Is failing really a big deal?
  • What's my latest unschooling book idea?
  • Where are we going when we take unschooling on the road?
  • Does encouragement work both ways?

 

I'm also sharing the story Fearing Our Kids Will Fail from my book Curious Unschoolers.

156: Building Strong Relationships with Our Kids

This week, I'm sharing 3 stories about my young adult son Callum (who likes to grin!):

  • How I Removed an Engine from a Car
  • Engines, Muscles and Spending Time with Dad
  • My Fridge Adventure

I talk about building strong relationships with our kids by:

  • Taking an interest in their passions.
  • Spending time with them.
  • Being daring and adventurous parents who like to have fun.

As well, I talk about:

  • Self-directed learning.
  • Being honest.

I also share a couple of reviews for my books Curious Unschoolers and Radical Unschool Love.

155: Another Way of Looking at Our Unschooled Kids’ Learning

This week, I'm sharing and discussing the story, Another Way of Looking at Our Kids' Learning

I talk about my teenager's morning:

  • What Gemma-Rose did
  • How I could record that learning in terms of school subjects
  • And how I could think about her learning in another way

I also talk about the importance of play for both children and adults.

And I share a couple of podcast reviews that I was thrilled to receive. A big thank you to The Simple living Mom and Home Ed Fam!!
