My name is Chitra Iyer. I'm a business writer, editor, organic farmer, horse breeder, and mom of two delightful and fearless learners. Each of those are things I began doing after I turned 35. After over a decade as a corporate marketer.
That makes me a perpetual learner, unlearner, and relearner – skills I assumed I had, until….
until I actually threw myself into multiple unknown worlds - parenting, farming, writing - at the same time.
It challenged me to examine my relationship with learning and exposed my (dis)comfort with failing.
I realized that ‘learning to learn’ effectively is a skill. One that needs to be consciously and consistently nurtured from early on. And it begins at home, with the parents.
However, in the age of digi-tech, data, and distraction, ‘Effective Learning’ is even more than just a skill.
It can be a superpower.
Let's explore what effective learning looks like, and how we can help our kids get there. Let's help them learn anything with the confidence of 'pro learners'!
Why Polymath Parenting?
I chose that name because I'm inspired by how polymaths learn from and connect a wide range of disciplines to come up with brand new ideas. Let's explore how our our kids 'learn to learn' with curious new eyes.
Join me in thinking like a polymath by borrowing the best ideas about learning from all domains - from sports to science, art to history; and apply them to help our kids be more effective learners.
Empowering parents with the ideas and strategies to help our kids become effective 21st century learners.
