Taking the steps to guide your children through difficult experiences, risky obstacles and problem solving without you there, not only builds strong character - it builds resilience. In today's episode, join us in a discussion with someone who offers advice from the principal's office, that we can use to build kids with courage.

In this episode you will learn about:

  • Discovering your child's false narratives, and reframing new stories about themselves
  • How to identify distress in your child
  • Why it's smart to join forces with your school, how exactly is that done
  • How children perceive more than you think, and what you need to do right now about it.
  • The first thing you must do when confronting oppositional defiance
  • Punishment and reward
  • How you must view the no man's land of middle school <-- this one's great!
  • Handling separation anxiety
  • ... so much more

Scott has spent the last two decades working to better the lives of children, with a specialization in helping elementary school–aged kids learn how to manage unpleasant emotions and control the resulting behaviors. His passion for helping the most vulnerable of children stems back to the trials and tribulations of his own youth.

He is a certified school psychologist and public school special education administrator, who combines his personal experience and professional training to help families navigate some of the most challenging times of their lives.

He worked as a graduate-level college instructor at the University of Connecticut, teaching special education teachers how to identify educational disabilities in students. Additionally, he spent several years working with psychiatrically hospitalized children and adolescents. Scott is currently the principal of a small therapeutic elementary school for children in need of significant social, emotional, and behavioral supports.
