206: Raising Curious, Well-Educated Children Outside the Conventional Classroom with Kerry McDonald

By November 2, 2021February 2nd, 2023No Comments

While I’m raising my own child, I’m also healing my own inner child.

One thing I’ve realized is that so many of the things I’m learning about raising him… like communication, how to teach him, how he learns… are also relevant to how I deal with my own inner child.

The way I speak to myself is so similar to how I should speak to him. Connecting through emotions before logic. Letting curiosity lead.

Even if you’re not planning on having children, there’s a wealth of info on how to care for yourself. Healing your inner child is all about re-parenting yourself.

So today we’re going to be talking about how to foster skills that are actually helpful in the age we’re living in – whether you’re applying these skills to teaching your real child, or your inner child.

Our guest today is Kerry McDonald, author of multiple books, including: Unschooled: Raising Curious, Well-Educated Children Outside the Conventional Classroom.
