Inspiration and Encouragement for Unschooling Parents
Monday, August 22, 2011
"My suggestion to you is to focus on making a "better" choice each time you can. I think that was the most helpful advice I got as a parent of younger kids—it was surprisingly practical and encouraging to simply consider at least two choices and pick the better one. The next time, try to think of the one you did choose and then one other—pick the better one. If you make a choice you're unhappy with, after the fact, think then about what would have been a better choice—have that one 'on hand' for next time.
"Don't expect to be perfect, but expect yourself to be improving all the time."
