Today’s guest is Barb Lundgren, founder and director of the international Rethinking Everything Conference , publisher of Rethinking Everything Magazine, and extremely happy mother of three self-directed learners who are now in their 20s. She says lots of insightful things in this interview, such as “Being a conscious intelligent resourceful loving unconditionally supportive parent is a very challenging job in Western civilization,” and “the goal is to get to yes.” But don’t take my word for it – listen for yourself. You’ll see.
The song that popped into my mind to play at the end of the episode is by Bar Scott (written long before she became a mother), and not until after I’d gotten it firmly stuck in my head did I remember that her son Forrest died before he turned four. Since then it’s been a weepy evening, but worth it.
A Mother’s Legacy
Listen, my son Your life is all that I can give If I could, I’d teach you all that I have learned Go and err And know my love Know my love is in your heart
