Hi all! Let Grow’s Vice President for School Programs, Andrea Keith, has a new podcast about bringing our childhood independence initiatives to elementary and middle schools, via things like our Let Grow Project and Let Grow Play Club (both free free free!).
In the first podcast, she talks to Dr. Michael Hynes, the superintendent who brought both initiatives to his schools and saw a change not just in the students, but in their parents. They kept trusting their kids to do more and more on their own. Everyone’s anxiety abated as their confidence grew.
And these are ideas that can be adopted to distance-learning, too!
Check out our new Capable and Confident Kids podcast for anyone working in the K-8th grade world!
