    The Disintegrating Student: Smart but Struggling & How to Turn It Around

    The Disintegrating Student: Smart but Struggling & How to Turn It Around

    What is a disintegrating student and how has covid contributed to that? How can this be turned around before school starts?
    To address this I’ve invited Dr. Jeannine Jannot to be a guest on our show. Jeannine is the founder of The Balanced Student and author of The Disintegrating Student: Struggling But Smart, Falling Apart, & How To Turn It Around. She has over 25 years of experience working with children, teenagers and young adults in both public and private school settings spanning preschool through college. Jeannine has a master's degree in school psychology from The Ohio State University and a doctorate in child and developmental psychology from the University of Connecticut. She has also been a college instructor, teaching psychology courses and freshman seminars, for the past 10 years.
    We also explore the difference between a fixed mindset and growth mindset. Teens can self sabotage and self handicap themselves when they believe that they have a fixed mindset. In reality teens have a tremendous capacity for growth.
    Did you know that a teens IQ can vary as much as 18 points in adolescence?
    You are going to especially love Jeannines tips to be productive and well. specifically around organization, time management, study skills and habits, mindset , stress, sleep and screens
    You can find information about Jeannine's coaching, speaking, book, and her monthly Some Thoughts newsletter on her website jeanninejannot.com.

    Dying to Be a Good Mother

    Dying to Be a Good Mother

    Do you believe you can feel positive emotions like joy, aliveness, inspired and still be a mom?
    Well there are cultural beliefs about motherhood that will definitely rob you of feeling good like...
    •  Our teens should be perfect, because, naturally, our parenting is, too, or it should at least look or sound or seem that way.
    •  Parenting causes perpetual exhaustion, dirty hair days, bad hair days, body confidence issues, and endless feelings of overwhelm. It also creates the need for nonstop caffeine and, of course, “wine o’clock.”
    •  Parenting is hard, and if you don’t complain about it or feel miserable, exhausted, and stressed out most of the time, you’re not one of the “good” moms.
    •  Its selfish to take care of myself I need to sacrifice everything for my family

    #120 Smarter Teens? Get Them Outside Their Heads

    #120 Smarter Teens? Get Them Outside Their Heads

    Have you ever had a teen stay in their room for hours. And they were actually doing their homework but it took them way longer than it should? A lot of my parents I've coached tell me, "My daughter takes four hours to get her homework done when it should've only taken two hours. And then she's up too late and doesn’t get enough sleep."
    Our guest today has some amazing research and practical tips that will literally help your teens extend their brains. .
    Annie Murphy Paul is an acclaimed science writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American, and The Best American Science Writing, among many other publications. She is the author of Origins, selected by the New York Times Book Review as a “Notable Book,” and The Cult of Personality, hailed by Malcolm Gladwell in the New Yorker as a “fascinating new book.” Her TED Talk has been viewed more than 2.6 million times. A graduate of Yale University and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, she is currently a Learning Sciences Exchange Fellow at New America. And she is the mother of two teenage boys.
     Her latest book The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain was just released. In this book she talks about how we can extend our brains by thinking with our bodies through sensation movement and gesture. Thinking with our surroundings through natural spaces, built spaces, the space of ideas. And Thinking with our relationships through experts, peers and groups.
