Memorable Quote “Actually having a person sitting next to you with the controller and having that easy cool presence while engaging is like a digital super food.” – Jocelyn “You don't have to be a gamer and I guess this is what I encourage parents to really look beyond. We wouldn't say, oh, I'm not much of a booker. If you could just go over there and do your booking and like, just, don't ask me to want to know anything about what you're doing with your books. We wouldn't have that same kind of attitude. And so this is what I mean about curiosity.” – Jocelyn “What we noticed with young people, especially around relationships or thinking they know everything is that they're walking through this big dark, I usually call it a warehouse of their life, with a match. What they can see is only as far as that match gives them insight and they think, oh wow, I can see everything. Whereas the process of brain development and the experiences of life, start throwing on bigger and better light bulbs.” - Jocelyn Resources Enter Competition to win a spot in Jocelyn’s Course, Engaging (Tech Obsessed) Adolescents here!
