The Gift of Failure with Author Jessica Lahey

I welcome back Jessica Lahey to discuss her New York Times Bestselling Book, “The Gift of Failure: Learning to Let Go so our children can succeed.”

We discuss the following (and so much more):

  • Why is society so fixated on points and scores rather than the actual process of learning?
  • What is the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivators and why are they important?
  • What is the difference between autonomy and independence?
  • What other options do you have if you don’t bribe, nag, or impose punishment in order to get kids to do what we want them to do?
