I am liking these 5 min Fridays, its nice to hear people like me asking questions, I have listened to all 2 years worth of pod casts and most of your guests are alpha go get them people that have a lot of drive. It's hard to see myself in any of them, I feel like a washed up mum (with great kids) that used to have a career most days. If you ever need a researcher who lives on the other side of the world... :)

This has been sitting on my list for while and I happened to listen to it the day my Mum disowned me and my sister on FB. It gave me a little reality check and kept me out of the abyss :) I think it is important to share these stories to give other the space to do so, you are very brave, thank you for sharing.

OMG you have to put the last 10-15 mins on children's talents in a child friendly format, been telling my 9yr old a version of that for months. She is such a lovely soul and totally average in a crowd of over achieving friends. What she doesn't see is she is the glue that holds them together. I keep telling her she has the type of talents that adults spend a lot of money learning but kids (and schools) can't see.

I can only hope the interviewer got confused considering most paleo stuff I have read has glorified the Western Price Diet. Cutting out all grains and dairy is important if you have an intolerance but there are plenty of Paleo folks that eat rice and raw milk. Bone broth and suet rules.

All this assumes the 'Teacher' is capable of teaching these skills. My husband is a high school Maths teacher and he has kids coming to him all the time asking him how to do stuff because their teachers are crap - at maths. You expect teachers to be better at life skills than you, dream on. I am talking very generally here, I expect there is no difference in the divorce for teachers or even councillors for that matter.

Thanks for sharing this, I feel like this often. Why am I making so much effort and 'doing without' when people around me are oblivious and going through plastic by the tonne. I read a quote the other day that says it all, in my own words - the 'right' thing to do is always the hardest thing to do. 


It does help the rest of us to keep at it when we know the ones we look up too struggle too :)
