Welcome to my summer 2023 replay series!
This summer, I’m re-releasing some of my favourite ever podcast episodes that I think are well worth a re-listen.
In this episode, which was first released way back in October 2021 as episode 4 of the first season of the podcast, I talked about the fascinating book ‘The Danish Way of Parenting’ by Jessica Joelle Alexander and Iben Dissing Sandhal. In the episode, I discussed ways of implementing their ideas in the language classroom. It’s all about creating a warm atmosphere, being authentic and empathetic, allowing children to play and make mistakes, and focusing on the process/effort rather than achievement. Probably not worth listening to if you’re hoping for tips on how to scare children and the best way to yell at them!
For more information on this way of parenting and engaging with young people in general, have a look at their amazing website http://thedanishway.com and follow them on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thedanishway/
