157: Fearing Our Kids Will Fail | Stories of an Unschooling Family

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.
