    Ep. 14 | Dr. Ken Ginsburg | Teens in the Time of COVID

    In this episode, Dr. Ken Ginsburg describes our current world crisis as a generation defining moment. The loss of school, sports, activities and experience outside of home all cause unique levels of stress for teens. As well, it can be an opportunity for emotional growth. Dr. Ginsburg says, “Children need to learn to fill their own time, manage their own emotions, and solve their own problems. We should be like lighthouses - ever present, available for guidance – but clear we are not steering the boat.”

Needs an upgrade! ,

Anxiety during the Pandemic

I certainly needed that piece of inspiration. That reminder that I need swagger with my kids right now. Thanks. I hope you can do more during this difficult time that can help us with the tools we need right now to navigate while acknowledging the seriousness of what could be another Great Depression due to the job loss and economic repercussions. A reminder of what’s most important isn’t the materialist. Anything you can think of that could help with “we got this”. I loved that we are designed to face adversity!!! Keep it going.
