What’s your most vivid learning memory? Share your brilliance!
We’re thinking about how Minimalist Parenting can help you navigate the exciting (and often tricky) waters of your child’s education. So much about school — choosing the “right” school for you child, and then helping him thrive there — causes parents to shift into a new level of worry. Is he happy? Is he learning enough? Does he get along with his teacher? Is he making friends?
We’d like to take the focus off of school for a moment and think more broadly about learning. Starting with your learning memories.
What are your most vivid learning memories? Can you recall a time or an experience in which you learned a skill or attitude you’ve used for the rest of your life? You may have learned it in school or out, during childhood or adulthood — doesn’t matter. We just want to know when and how you picked up that bit of wisdom that has served you most.
We’re keeping an eye out for original stories and anecdotes to share in our book (there will be lots of space devoted to school and the social scene). Please be sure to include your email address if you’d like to be considered. We won’t add it to a mailing list — we’ll only contact you to ask permission to include your story.
Thank you! Can’t wait to hear your stories.
