Episode 10 - Dick Moore - When the worst happens
WARNING: This episode contains discussions about suicide and self harm. Since November 2012, Dick has been visiting schools, universities and organisations to help raise awareness of mental health issues. Did you know that 10% of young people are suffering from a diagnosable mental health disorder today? Not only does this mean that a vast number of young people are unhappy, but also that they are underperforming at school, college and in the early stages of their careers. The consequences for families, schools and employers are dire. And yet mental health remains a largely hidden epidemic. There is SO much more that could be done - that SHOULD be done. https://www.dickmoore.org/

Parent Guide to GCSE Podcast: Episode 8 - The biggest pressure on teens, and what to do about it
Alicia Drummond runs www.teentips.co.uk. She is a BACP accredited therapist, parent coach, speaker, author and, most importantly, a mother.

We talk helping parents create a healthy environment for teenagers, why the teenage brain is not naturally 'wired' for revision, and the importance of an end goal to help with motivation.

Parent Guide to GCSE Podcast: Episode 7 - Emotional resilience (and the stories we tell ourselves)
Kim Ades is the President and Founder of Frame of Mind Coaching™ and JournalEngine™ Software. Author, speaker, entrepreneur, coach and mother of 5, Kim is recognized as one of North America’s leading experts on performance through thought mastery. Kim talked to us about emotional resilience, and how the ability to not just bounce back but to grow from setbacks, is the key to success. We discussed how the stories we tell ourselves define our experience, and why it's so important to take control of those stories and keep them positive. We delve into how (and why) to have difficult conversations with your teen. Most importantly, we talked about how 'parenting' is all about you - the parent. The most important thing you can do is to self-manage. Controlling those instincts to nag them about revision might be one of the toughest things you can do, but it's also one of the best things you can do... Kim has offered a 15 minute complimentary coaching call - grab yours here: https://www.frameofmindcoaching.com/complimentary-coaching-call/ If you've ever wanted to know more about us (Paul & Em) as parents, and how wonderfully imperfect we are at it, this is the episode for you!
