Episode #29: Play Activation and The Free to Play Summit with Sally Haughey


Today’s episode is the last episode of Season 2! I talked with Sally Haughey, the Founder and CEO of Fairy Dust Teaching. We talked about how children need to be lifted and celebrated instead of shamed and compared. We also talk about the importance of children having the right to play and we don’t need to take them out of that! I’m so excited to talk more about her Free to Play Summit that is happening on July 12-16 online. There’s so many great nuggets during this interview with Sally and I can’t wait for you to listen in.
