Let’s be honest – when I’m on the treadmill I need something to watch or read to completely distract me otherwise I’m will flit off and do something less useful.
I also figure that while I’m ‘captive’ I should probably grow my brain as well as my leg muscles. So I was quite happy when a fellow homeschooler recommended this live talk of Gordon Neufeld, a development psychologist, talk about why our children need us more than they need their friends (peers).
It’s worth the time investment to hear about how we can fortify our children’s resilience. Great stuff.
