Conscious Parenting Lecture 3: The Case Against Teaching

In a world that is trying to turn your child into everybody else through teaching and indoctrination, in this 2-hour lecture Naomi turns the common fixated beliefs upside down so we can discover how children learn. We will explore how to open doors of knowledge and skill for a child without undermining her natural direction and her innovative methods of discovery. Learning to read without teaching. Inventing math when self-directed. How to nurture musical talent without undermining the child’s natural gifts. Cultivating the child’s natural strive for excellence. Freedom, not license.
