Parenting Then... & Now

 

Many parents and teachers can't help but compare what it was like "back then" to the way things are now. So you could imagine my ultimate glee when I learned that a podcast exists on this very topic. I had the good fortune to be interviewed on this episode, and topics ranged from what it was like as a child vs. now, math learning for boys vs. girls, and the pixelated elephant in the room: how imbalanced use of technology undermines our kids’ ability to connect to others and lead fulfilling lives.

It's uncanny that the people who write about Yay Math are often the same journalists who benefitted from its videos while they were in school. Writers know a story when they see it! This time it was a student apprentice of the Free Press, who not only used Yay Math, but also saw how others around her were being affected by it.
