“What are you going to do this week, Mum?”
“I’m going to make a couple of videos.”
And I did!
So what are they about? The first one is about encouraging kids’ ideas. Sometimes, to us, children’s ideas sound impractical or even silly. Is it better to tell them their ideas aren’t likely to succeed or should we encourage them to try them out?
The second video is about life-long learning. I used to think education was just for kids. I’d done my time at school, now it was my kids’ turn to learn. Sometimes, it was a battle to get them to work. Things turned around when, at last, I realised learning is a natural part of life for everyone, and not something just for kids.
Do these topics sound familiar? They might do if you listened to this week’s podcast, Getting Older, Unschooling and Moving On.
Each video contains an excerpt from that podcast episode. I added slideshows of photos, some graphics plus a bit of music. Before I knew it, one podcast had turned into two videos! Each is just under 5 minutes long.
Not everyone has time to listen to 30 minutes or more of podcast. I understand that. But 5 minutes? Perhaps that’s more appealing? I hope so!

Didn’t I have a productive week? I hope you did too!
