Hey friends, back at ya after a long hiatus!
I'm going a little freestyle in today's episode: I fill you in on what's been up in my world in the past few months, where my head has been, as well as talk about a big change for our family, the boys having started school this month after five years of home-schooling.
The truth of it is, what I want for my children has not actually changed that much.
I still would love for them to be free in body and mind, understand how to take good care of themselves, have the courage to ask questions without fear of being different and develop a love of nature and strong sense of community.
But as they’ve gotten older and our family structure has also changed, as well as some other factors that I go into in the episode, it was becoming clear that they could benefit from being part of a welcoming community on a regular basis.
Tune in to hear about what went into our decision, my thoughts on the idea of "sacrifice" and the question of how to strike that delicate balance between respecting your kids' autonomy versus knowing when it's time to push them a little out of their comfort zone. 💕
