Educated (7): you, life and other people

If you can raise your children to like and believe in themselves, and to be interested in life and other people, the rest is detail.


Most of the important bits of “educated” are absorbed rather than taught. Schooling and opportunities help, but the slow drip of love and respect from people you love and respect is indispensable.

Which leads us to the truth that at the end of the day, all of us are homeschooled… and to the inevitability of inequality.

Answers on a postcard, please, if you have any!

P.S. By amazing coincidence, Happy Birthday CIL!

I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommended resources...
