Instead of helping your kids see the world differently, you try to see your kids’ world differently?
This idea comes from my two-part episode with Philip Mott, which is all about homeschooling and consent based learning.
Philip Mott is the author of Principles of the Patient Parent, and elementary teacher turned homeschooling father.
He shares his struggles with school growing up, and how he started to associate learning with pain, frustration, and being looked down on— something I never want my kids to feel while learning.
As someone who never quite vibed with the educational system myself, the topic of alternative education is one I want to consistently explore.
Philip and I cover lots of ground, including — curiosity, consent, and recognizing the storyline of your kids.
Philip teaches us that there shouldn’t be a difference between learning and living and wants to shift your mindset around how to educate your kids.
If you’ve ever considered a different approach to your kids schooling, I promise you won’t want to miss this 2-part episode!
