Does your kid *really* need to learn that?

Updated: Dec 19, 2022

I challenge you to be sure that these three things are met before you start teaching any new skill!

#1 - is it really necessary to learn this skill? Or are there other ways this could be accomplished without it?

#2 - is it meaningful to the learner's life? Will it truly make their life better/safer/happier? Are they giving assent to learn this skill? If not, that should really be considered unless it is 100% necessary to health or safety.

#3 - is it functional? How does this help them? Is it really something that will be used in their life? Once they learn this skill, how will their life be easier?
