My Kid Teaches Me My Own Tricks

I’m talking about this website with my son.  The plans I have.  As an individual. As a team.  And how I’ve been unable to keep it going and growing as much as I would have liked.

He then tells me all the things that I know I should be doing.  The consistency of creating. The focus. The content. The marketing. The branding. Etc.

I let him ramble on for a few minutes.

And it dawns on me.  That we’ve been teaching him all of this stuff.  He’s soaking it up and applying what we teach him to his own projects.  Then he is showing me that he understands by trying to teach it all back to me 🙂

He probably knows more than the average 12 year old kid on the topic of web and YouTube building, but that’s not the point.  When he talks about it, his eyes light up. He is completely engaged in the things he is doing.  It is great to see him struggle and grow through some thing he really enjoys.

This year has been a tough one for me.  I hope to get back on track to what this unschool.me space was supposed to be.  And lots of what I’d like to share are things around what we do.

I hope you will all get to know our life that bit better.  Stay tuned and be sure to subscribe to our updates!
