Podcast Episode #18 – Meeting Unique Needs

Educating Our Kids

Consciously parenting runs through all areas of life, including learning environments. Instead of pushing through life, rolling over and shutting down emotional responses – both in ourselves and with our children – consciously parenting takes a different route.

Children’s emotions are allowed, valued, and approached with care. The totality of each individual’s temperament and perspective is welcomed during day-to-day experiences.

Conscious parents feel for the growing edge, and then layer on necessary support. This process changes over time, but open conversations and mutual respect are always involved.

While we accept there will always be ebb and flow in each relationship, we navigate it together with our kids. Heart-to-heart conversation that focuses on what everyone needs now, and how most needs can be met in the best way, stands firmly at the center.

How can you include individual perspectives, personalities, learning styles, preferences, and aptitudes in open and respectful family discussions about learning environments?

Begin with trust – in yourself and your intuition, in your children and their uniqueness, in your relationship, and in the wide array of learning options you can uncover if you keep an open mind.
