Curiosity Week 2 - Kids

3/31/2019
This week, Hannah and Renee talk about how hard it is to guide your kid's curiosity. And how much pressure society put on you to do it a certain way.

So we have to get over ourselves, teach the kids, and do our best to help them learn. Thanks to Wendy Child (http://wendychildmusic.com/) for the music! Follow us...
