Episode Info:

Teru Clavel is a mother of three (ages 10-15), author, and comparative education expert. She talks about principles of education that can be applied in all of our lives. We talk about resiliency, failure, and confidence. We talk about what we can do in our own homes to support our children no matter where they go to school.

Key Points from this Episode:
  • Play-based preschool helped build children's independence and prepared them to make choices for themselves.
  • Some moments in parenthood when we realize our kids rely on us, so we have to "wake up" and meet their needs completely. We have to choose strength in that moment.
  • Failure is a critical part of the learning process. Most of the important lessons we learn in life come from failure.
  • Failure builds resiliency!
  • More technology is not the answer to teach our children. Having technology is not bad, but the learning process works better in a more tactile world.
  • Motherhood is a great learning ground for multitasking and prioritizing. We naturally measure everything against our children and their needs.
