Show # 16: Parents As Partners in Education

In this week's show, we talk about how important it is to teach children that the main limitation about what they CAN do is what they tell themselves they CANNOT do. In other words, the limitations we impose on ourselves, such as "I'm no good at Math" or "I can't do this stupid thing" become self fulfilling prophesy. We need to teach our children (and ourselves) to be able to step back and approach the problem from a different perspective, or after a break, when we can conquer it, especially if we have to power of a positive attitude.

This week, I've had a great email from Dr. Mike Patrick Jr., a pediatrician who has started his own podcast for parents, entitled Pediacast. You can get it through iTunes or on his website.

This week's song is Save Our School by the Children of Selsted CE Primary School in Kent, England. All funds generated fromt he sale of this song through the Podsafe Music Network go directly to the School, to help keep it open for these chidren who clearly are passionate about their school, and the community it represents.

Please email us at or leave us a voicemail at (206) 666-2343.
