Reminding myself that my kids are their own people, and parenting is messy.
Lexie’s summer project is in the zone of health specifics: changing up her diet to see if it makes a difference for her acne. We’ll see what happens.
When we feel crappy, it’s hard to show up (hello, crappy zone!). Enter self-care baseline. Yes, it’s THAT important.
Rejection hurts. What do we do when it happens for our kids?
Are you wondering how you can best support your student (and what they could try to help take care of themselves), particularly if they (or you) are feeling overwhelm lapping at the edges and may not be sure where to start?
Want to work with your kids to create a summer that feels useful in terms of learning and exploring as well as relaxing? I recently spoke with educator Joyce Wong about building a constructive summer. Here’s our conversation.
The THRIVE program supports hard and soft skills, including self-awareness and reflection. Check out Ethan’s thoughts and learnings on the purpose of high school.
I asked the students in my THRIVE program to write a post on a topic that meant something to them. One student reflected on making friends during high school (and that sometimes it may not be super easy).
My students got to pick a topic of their choice, something that meant something to them. One wrote about measuring success; another wrote about starting a new life after a big move. Check out their thoughts.
I challenged students in my Thrive program to write posts on their choice of topics. Procrastination and stress were two topics that showed up.
