Parental Involvement with Dr. Robert Zeitlin The Peg Doesn't Fit

    • Education

Ryan is out on vacation this week so Erich is running the show solo. Join him as he discusses the importance of parental involvement at school. Too often parents are only really included in their child's education when something goes wrong. What if we made a conscious effort to connect with parents as partners in their child's education. In today's episode, Erich visits with Doctor Robert Zeitlin about different ways to help parents feel connected at school.

Dr. Robert Zeitlin has dedicated the last 20 years to raising his kids, helping the children under his care, and working with parents to raise the children that the future needs. With his wife Betsy, Robert has raised two amazing teens who are kicking ass and taking names. Working in schools, with parents in his community, and through his practice, Robert has maximized his background in Clinical Psychology to create family and school cultures that produce courageous leaders and communicators.

In addition to his work as a psychologist, Dr. Zeitlin has authored two books.

"But I'm Not a Teacher! A Parent's Guide to Learning Under Lockdown" emphasizes the role that parents can play in their kids' learning journey, resisting the pressure to treat them like robots, clearing the way to rekindle a love of learning rather than complying with an emphasis on grades and pleasing teachers, and taking care of themselves (parents as models) in a holistic, 360 degrees way (sleep, mindfulness, movement, screen time, etc.) in order to handle the challenges of working from home/virtual learning.

"Laugh More, Yell Less: A Guide to Raising Kick-Ass Kids" is a call-to-action for parents who are willing to change their family culture from the inside-out, hacking the relational energy in their house, zooming in and zooming out, providing a protective space for their kids to have their feelings, and taking calculated risks to "go out on a limb" to flex their own superpowers.

Additional resources Dr. Zeitlin recommends are as follows:


The Relational Book for Parenting
The Coaching Habit
A blog post written by Dr. Zeitlin: What is School (Really) For?
