Kids’ extracurricular activities. On the one hand, we’re trying to resist the pressure to sign kids up for ALL THE THINGS (which was the topic of our last episode, Part 1 of this series). On the other: supporting, in a balanced way, a kid who has an all-consuming passion for an activity. Episode 30 of Edit Your Life is Part 2 of our discussion about extracurriculars. In this episode, Christine and I discuss the joys and challenges of parenting passionate kids and share 9 tips for both supporting and reigning in that passion.
