(but also for everyone else)
Matt Beaudreau returns to map out a hero's journey for teens. We'll also discuss how students are guided through this process at Acton Academy, and how homeschooling and unschooling parents can help nurture this process in their own children.
Plus much more on
- goals, systems, habits and routines
