“There’s a real lack of understanding of what parenting is about,” explains mom and teacher Esther Wojcicki. She sees parents who are fearful that their child will fail, and anxious that they’ll make irreparable mistakes. This fear and insecurity come from a place of love – they want their children to succeed – but the result is a generation of anxiety-ridden and helpless young people. Using the “Woj Way” that stresses trust, respect, independence, collaboration and kindness, will help you raise children who become self-reliant, capable and confident adults.
