EP 10 – Nature, Scouts, and Loving Adventures with Grandpa

In this conversation with Charles Pineo, we discuss raising two in-home grandsons. Charles discusses his love of the outdoors, especially for epic canoeing trips in Canada and the North East United States. We talk about using scouts and the outdoors to help teach confidence and conversation skills with his grandsons. There are fantastic tips on spending time with the grandchildren out away from electronics and how helping them spend time with other adults on adventures increases self-awareness and self-confidence.
