In our attempts to find a philosophy of education that works for our families, we can feel batted around by the strong gusts of:

  • the latest curricula,
  • the current trends in home education,
  • the program that solved whatever schooling issue over which we’d agonized.

And whenever we seek out advice, it always comes with a mixture of inspiration and guilt.

On today’s Brave Writer podcast, I’m going to share some strategies on how to integrate all of your aspirations without feeling overwhelmed.

Most parents love the idea of allowing their children to be independent, follow their own passions and interests, and be enriched by them. But not all of those interests are equal — at least in our eyes.

What happens when our kids’ interests take them in directions that, to us, don’t seem valuable? How do we direct them toward learning without shutting down their hobbies and interests?

Let’s discuss on today’s Brave Writer podcast!

As parents and caretakers, we are often torn between the trust we feel for our children and the worry that something will go wrong. These two are intrinsically opposed: Trust is the act of letting go of worry. That’s difficult to do when so much of parenting is wrapped up in worry—it gives us value.

On today’s podcast, we discuss:

  • the risks of trusting your child,
  • the dangers of worrying too much,
  • and some tips on how you can let go of a little more worry.

Podcast: Emotional Safety in Writing

Continuing our podcast series on the Four Forces of Enchantment, let’s talk more about risk-taking.

Some writing programs don’t address the key condition needed to take risks in writing: emotional safety.

That’s why writing a diary or a journal has been popular for centuries. The tradition of daily writing away from readers allows people to:

  • discover their own thoughts,
  • externalize their feelings,
  • process what happens to them.

In our “educator” hunger to create writers of our children, sometimes we skip the step that allows them to write without our prying eyes.
