I think the OC recipe is a keeper!
...every week the conversations were vibrant and
engaging, the people were terrific...
We have valued self-directed learning and freedom for most of our lives and we knew we wanted the same for our children even before we had them.
OC [provided] the all-important working in groups, and learning to do so effectively and with emotional maturity is quite fruitful.
It felt personally meaningful and appropriately challenging to have the opportunity to stand in front of my peers and be an expert on something that I was excited about.
...trust [your] young people and never compare them to anyone else. They are who they are, and that is perfect.
