I Got In Trouble With Lady Gaga

The first thing you need to know is that I am almost completely pop culture illiterate.

The second thing you must know is that my wife Shelly is NOT pop culture illiterate.

Ok, now that you know that...the story.

I referenced Lady Gaga twice in the last week.  The first time was about her Super Bowl National Anthem performance which I thought was a travesty.  Her dress etc made the performance about her, not America...Bad in my book.

The second time was on Monday when I wrote;

To truly prosper, and I don’t mean just financially, although I mean that too…our children must learn how to harness, package and transact their self awareness.

Lady Gaga knows who she is, but she has also taken great care to sculpt how she presents herself, and she’s obviously doing a great job transacting it.

This kind approach to identity and prosperity is NOT reserved for pop stars. The EXACT same dynamics are true for our children as well…not to mention families and parents!

You can see the whole post here.

Th point I was trying to make for unschooling parents is that IDENTITY is vitally important.  Specifically we must learn who we are, find a way to package it and learn to coordinate and transact with others to make the world a better place and prosper.

I used Lady Gaga, because I'm pop culturally illiterate, when I could have...should have used a number (a big number) of far better examples to make my point.

Sorry for the Lady Gaga example, but not for the point about IDENTITY and I hope you are getting that point by the way.

It may sound simple, but it is definitely not trivial.

Speaking of IDENTITY, there are only SIX days remaining to apply for our Founding Family Membership.  This is a chance to be one of the first families to participate in The Heroic Family Unschooling Experience.

We are offering it at a really great opportunity available to just a few families in exchange for providing feedback and support...you can learn more by clicking right here.
