YOU ARE A PARENT, NOT A SOCRATIC GUIDE

Laura Sandefer

May 21, 2014

I am not one to give advice on parenting. I make too many mistakes.

I am one to share the beauty of knowing when – as a parent – to summon our Socratic selves.

The journey of Acton Academy is for parents as much as children. We get to soak up powerful lessons of the Socratic Method and use them in transformative ways with our children.

My top three lessons are:

1)    Stories are more powerful than lectures.

2)   Children crave solving problems on their own. Honor them by letting them.

3)   Knowing how to ask great questions is more important than being smart.

Aren’t we lucky?
