How to Raise Emotionally Resilient, Confident Children

Parents and teachers and anyone who works with children - you'll want to tune into this episode! While it seems as if children are experiencing more mental challenges than ever before, there IS a way to get to the root of these challenges.

Special guest Dr. Sandy Gluckman has made it her mission to get to the root of child behavior. She is not in favor of "managing" the symptoms children have. Instead she removes the symptoms by finding and healing the underlying root causes. She is a learning, behavior and mood specialist, author, educator, and international speaker who has consulted with and trained thousands of parents and teachers in different parts of the world. She presents a fundamental and highly effective shift in understanding how to treat and heal learning, behavior, and mood challenges - preferably without medication.

She is the author of "Parents Take Charge: Healing Learning, Behavior and Mood Challenges Without Medication" and "Who's in the Driver's Seat: Using Spirit to Lead Successfully." She also authored a chapter in "Mission Possible" and has published extensively in parenting, education, and business journals. She is a frequent speaker at healthcare, parenting, education, and business conferences.

In this conversation, she discusses neurotransmitters and their role in emotional resilience, the science of interpersonal neurobiology, and what parents and teachers can do to raise confident children. Her solutions are surprising yet encouraging.
