    #52: My Three Teenagers' Perspective on Quarantine, Online Learning and COVID-19

    #52: My Three Teenagers' Perspective on Quarantine, Online Learning and COVID-19

    Well, this is a first! On today’s episode, I’m interviewing my three teenagers: Noah, who’s in college and Mirabelle and Oliver who are in high school. You'll get to hear their take on online learning, what it was like to be quarantined as a family for three months, and how they’re processing the pandemic. I learned some new things by sitting down to talk to them—what the three positives and negatives were of quarantine, what they really thought of online learning, and what they’re most looking forward to doing outside the house. My hope is that this episode will inspire you with questions to ask your friends and family members and give you insight into a teen’s experience of COVID-19.

Whether you’ve gotten laid off, been diagnosed with an illness or are grappling with a loss, this episode will help you reframe your outlook when a change you didn’t choose comes out of the blue and into your world. I’m walking you through the difference between shock and wonder, how you can have more of the latter, rebuild your confidence, and get where you want to go faster.
