How I Fired Myself As a Parent So My Son Could Thrive
One of the biggest blessings of being self-employed for the last 15 years, is that I’ve been there for my kids when they needed me. Since I was home with the kids, I got to spend a few years letting the kids homeschool. We had an amazing time spending hours in the forest, and studying the things that really interested the kids instead of what they were being force fed to memorize for a test! We took extra courses in grammar, communication, and ethics–the things school never really teaches you properly, anyway. I got to bring my children with me on trips to meet amazing people and see beautiful parts of the world. We had our ups and downs, and unexpected “adventures,” but overall I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be present to my kids the last many years.
