Today Smarties Jen P. and Cheryl are talking to educator Mary Yorke Oates, Admissions Director at Charlotte Latin School, about the book a "The Gifts of Failure" by Jessica Lahey. This is the first in a series we’re doing with Mary Yorke on this awesome book. If you haven’t read it, we HIGHLY recommended it for parents with kids of all ages and stages. It seems like parents today have a huge fear of failure – whether it’s failing as a parent, watching your kids fail, being blamed for their failure, the list goes on and on. If you identify in the slightest with any of that, this book AND podcast are for you. Have fun listening as dive into it with Mary Yorke - our resident education expert.
