On today's episode, Sunit talks about using various religious holidays as teaching opportunities for yourself and your kids. She shares how they approach Christmas and Easter in their home even though they are not christian, and why she believes it is important to raise children who understand that Easter is not about bunnies and chocolates. She shares how she herself was raised and how it felt to become a grown adult and not know the basics. Sunit shares the 3 most important reasons why she believes kids should understand where these celebrations stem from, regardless of whether you choose to celebrate or not:
1.These conversations foster and keep alive their natural curiosity and help us raise kids who will ask questions and think for themselves.
2.Children become aware of the fact that we are all different, but also how similar we are. They learn to develop appreciation for differences but also the similarities.
3.Understanding deeper details and the true history and roots of certain religions and subjects just makes for smarter kids who are well versed in details.
In this episode, Sunit interviews Susan Whitehead. Susan is a homeschooling mother of 6 who shares how her and her family live a life of purpose and intention. She shares how being a "travelling family" has changed their lives, why they decided to live this way, and how to make any of your dreams and goals happen. They discuss the common excuses and barriers that hold many women back from living the life they want to live and remind us that we only have this one life. Susan talks about "the regret test", and also shares the intentional ways in which they parent. This episode is a must listen for anyone who ever wonders if it's possible to live the kind of life you want to live and raise the kinds of kids you want to raise!
