Show Title: Ep. 173: Inspiring Kids to Learn and Discover their Passions
Sharing highlights from Chapter 9 of my book, Boy Mom.
This is the eighth part of the 2022 monthly feature on the podcast, covering the “12 Things Your Son Needs Most from You” from my book, Boy Mom. Today I am sharing some snippets from Chapter 9 – Inspiring Young Minds. This chapter is all about motivating boys to learn and helping them discover what will fuel their soul (and hopefully stick with them into adulthood!)
We cover a lot in this episode – from creating a rich learning environment in the home, to small shifts that might help kids learn better (getting some fresh air, stand-up for math!? Etc.) We also talk about the importance of introducing kids to a variety of sports and activities, and allowing them to discover their passions at their own pace… I love this topic and I hope you do, too!
Be sure to check show notes for all of the links I mention, and a free download with conversation starters for fostering a growth mindset in your kids!
