Insights Into Teens: Episode 57 "Academic Expectations"

There is more to academic expectations than just getting good grades. Our schools and the incredible teachers who guide and nurture our children do more than just impart knowledge on their students. They help our children grow into adults, learn how to cope with life’s challenges and handle the stresses that come with life after school.

This week we look at what the expectations of our students are. We’ll talk about some techniques and hints to help our children achieve these academic expectations and show how the seemingly artificial challenges thrown at today’s youth are designed to teach kids to cope with life’s challenges and not just memorize textbook information.

Insights Into Teens: Episode 48 "Going off Script"

This week we take a bit of a detour from our regularly scheduled program and talk about the rough week that Maddie had. Encountering some of the typical issues that teens face like school stress, social anxiety, sleep issues, not feeling too well and a few other things we decided it was best to turn this into a bit of a rant and therapy session for Madison.

This was a multi-purpose episode this week. Not only were we trying to console Madison and help her cope with some of the issues that came up. Since what she was encountering was pretty typical of most teens, we thought our audience might benefit from hearing a first hand account of these challenges and possible ways to cope with them to get through weeks that just never seem to end.
