Anna Brown joins me this week to talk about our theme in the Living Joyfully Network this month, Cultivating Trust. This has been such a valuable theme to explore because trust really is foundational to unschooling—I can’t imagine unschooling thriving without trust!
We begin by looking at how we can develop trust with our children, which goes both ways: our trust in them and their trust in us. We also explore how we can similarly cultivate trust with our partner, which in turn helps to create a strong team spirit in our family.
From there, we consider the inner work that turns out to be such a powerful and important aspect of our unschooling journey: cultivating trust in ourselves. And finally, as our trusting and connected relationships continue to weave more strongly together with our growing understanding of and trust in ourselves, our trust and confidence in unschooling grows.
It was so interesting to dive into all of these overlapping layers of cultivating trust!
Things we discuss
- Cultivating trust with our children.
