Schools are where young people spend most of their day. They may spend more time with their friends and teachers than they do with their parents! It’s where friendships happen and where relationships form. It’s where teens find their self-worth – in popularity, in sports, in achievement. Guess what? It’s also a breeding ground for the exact opposite to happen. Schools have an amazing platform to reach huge numbers of kids to talk about these all-important issues. And yet, most don’t. In my book, Parenting…With A Twist, I have a whole chapter entitled “More Than A Fighting Chance.” In reading it, you will come to understand that your children need more than just their school education to come out a well-adjust adult ready to face “the real world”. The good thing is that you will now have the guidance from this Podcast series, 13 Reasons Why…Not.
