In this episode, we discussed an episode of The Good Life Project with Jonathan Fields, specific to a discussion with Jessica Lahey, author of “The Gift of Failure”.
This episode on The Good Life Project was hosted on August 10th, 2015 and can be found RIGHT HERE
What happens when parents (or teachers or coaches, family members, friends etc.) start to step into the world of their children and try to “do things for them” to help take the pressure off. For example, what if a parent consistently gets involved in doing the homework, art or science projects for their kids to help them get better grades, or to reduce their stress.
This problem is an increasing one, and Jessica Lahey has written a very intriguing book on the subject. It was a very thought provoking episode of The Good Life Project that we hope you decide to check out, and join us either before or after to chew on this topic a little more.
HEY YOU: You DON’T have to be a parent or teacher to get into this discussion… it relates to every single one of us at some level. And if you have kids, or are a teacher – this is a really important concept to get your head around!
Hope your week is grand, and thanks for listening!
