Anxiety, stress and fear in a teenager can lead to an unwillingness or inability to attend school. This week we discuss what School Refusal is. We’ll look at the symptoms and warning signs to look for. We’ll investigate some of the common causes of School Refusal. And we will look at some of the ways that parents and guardians can help their children overcome some of these issues.
Teenage years are stressful in nature. Add to that the social awkwardness associated with school, the expectations of performance in school and the random variables of bullies, peer rejection, family conflict and underlying anxiety disorder and you have a perfect storm. Supporting our children and ensuring they have an outlet to work through these issues is key. We’ll talk about this and much more in this week’s episode.

We also have an update on when Disneyland in California will reopen and the rules surrounding that reopening. And finally in Disney Detective we take a look at an update on our much anticipated Marvel shows WandaVision and Falcon and Winter Soldier.

Is Artificial Intelligence the future of human development or the potential downfall of human civilization?
What is the state of Artificial Intelligence today?
What are the pro’s and con’s of artificial intelligence?
We address these and many other questions in this episode of Insights Into Tomorrow. We’ll take a look at the four different levels of Artificial Intelligence and where today’s rudimentary AI has the potential of going.
Then we’ll ask the tough questions about AI. Should we allow AI to develop self awareness? Should AI be able to make life and death decisions? Will AI rob humans of jobs and safety.
There are a lot of questions and a lot of concerns about AI that need to be asked and answered before we get too far down the rabbit hole and reach a point of no return.

We’ll bash the Golden Globes a bit for this idiotic move.
Then we’ll move on to our Insightful Picks of the Week with a couple of good ones including a new satirical role for Steve Carell.
