On this week's episode of Sweat the Technique, Ravi sits down with Jessica Lahey, author of The Gift of Failure, for an illuminating conversation about parenting. From homework to report cards, social dynamics, and sports - Jessica’s advice will help parents step back and embrace their children’s setbacks along with their successes.
