Sarah and I are both deep into the kid activity stage of parenting. In general we are fans of kids being into lots of stuff. Activities are great for practicing skills, making friends, and learning about life.
Of course, that “life” part can sometimes be complicated. This week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds covers kid activities, but not so much from the logistical perspective. Instead, we look at the parenting challenges involved in navigating quitting, disappointment, competitiveness, and more.
In the Q&A a listener asks how Sarah stays informed about activities and such without being on social media. Please give the episode a listen! As always, we appreciate ratings and reviews! And if you have a policy on when kids can quit an activity, or how you handle disappointment, we’d love to hear that too.
