Are you a Ben, Did you Lose a Ben? Are you Raising a Ben?
This series is designed to speak to parents, teachers, and Ben’s themselves to understand how we can best serve them. To give them a place to share their stories and shed light on ways we can make a difference for these incredible kids who in my experience are here as change agents for a better world. However, raising them in our cultural messaging and programming is extremely difficult and, in many ways, harming to these kids. How can we help them live into their best selves? What tools do they need? How are they different from the kids who fit the mainstream model of education? Can they learn to thrive in an environment that is seemingly toxic to them? These are some of the questions that we seek to answer in this process of inquiry to those who are closest to them.
