We have had a couple of recent episodes, which you should check out if you haven’t already, on the LCO Good Life Camp. This camp, while an amazing experience on its own, is part of a larger grant we are working on with the LCO Tribal Child Support program. The grant is focused on responsible parenting and economic mobility. The underlying theme of the grant is the idea that by teaching young people about their own culture, we can improve these outcomes for them as they become adults. There is obviously a lot more to it than that… and that’s where our guest comes in. Today we welcome Dr. Nell Weber. Nell is a consultant and researcher with experience in parenting, parental beliefs, early childhood education, literacy, language acquisition, global citizenship, and international education. She earned her Doctorate in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and now makes her home in Charlottesville, Virginia.

We talk about her research on parenting both in the US and internationally, and how that background led her to our project. We discuss the impact of culture in parenting, and why this is such a key component of our project.
