Ep 44: Jessica Lahey on Kids and The Gift of Failure
Jessica Lahey, teacher, mom and bestselling author of The Gift of Failure, is here with tons of advice to help our kids become independent and thrive! We cover homework, bullying, rewards, parent/teacher relationships, the importance of free play and her surprise endorsement from Kristen Bell! Jessica also gives us a sneak peek at the fascinating subject of her next book. You can find Jessica Lahey on her website, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and find more info or purchase The Gift of Failure here. (I chose it as the inaugural pick of the This Mom Loves Virtual Book Club and we had some great discussions about it throughout this month! We're reading Woman on the Edge next - come join us!) Also in this episode: I made a big announcement about TML x HGBR, my first This Mom Loves product collaboration, with the gorgeous jewelry brand Hidden Gems By Raquel, launching March 1st! AND This Mom Loves logo t-shirts are now for sale! Order by February 7th to get in on the first batch! Thanks as always to my fantastic podcast editor Lukas Wojcicki!
