How do we encourage our kids to work hard while keeping school achievement hype in perspective? How do we balance supporting our kids without micromanaging them? In Episode 149, Asha and I share our evolving experiences as parents of high school- and college students, and give parents permission to pause, breathe, and remember that education is much bigger than school.
