Gerard: “No kid ever says, I have ‘talker’s block’.”
With the technology available today, like the Voice Memo app on your phone and Google Docs on your computer, you can spark your kid’s writing. Ask them a question, and record their answer.
Google Docs will even transcribe your words for you!
Gerard: “I have to frame it like this: I can only share things I think I’m working on, that I think other people can relate to.
Just like in teaching, you’re constantly modeling for kids. I think that really transfers over to parenting as well.”
