I am so excited to tell you about the amazing new podcast we are almost ready to launch: Upstanders Unite! The unscripted podcast where kids talk to experts on a variety of subjects. Asking the questions they want to ask. Finding out the info they want to know. With the ultimate goal being to find ways we can work together to make things better. The podcast is aimed at children from grades 4 to 8 and their families and provides great conversation starters for all sorts of different topics.
We have recorded the first 6 episodes on the following topics, and with the following guest experts:
Sleep – Diane Dauphinais, Sound Of Sleep Consulting Services – pictured in the above photo with me!
Cyber Bullies – Matthew Johnson, Director of Education, Media Smarts
Stress – Mary Alexandrou, Youthnet
Peer Pressure – Sylvia Corzato, Success In Steps – Parent Support & Behaviour Consulting
Self-Advocacy – Shannon Lavalley, Therapist, JFS Ottawa
Growth Mindset – Catherine McKenna, Coach, Shopify
I am editing these as we speak, and getting the necessary final approvals, and will then publish them on our new World-Changing Kids SoundCloud page. I will make sure to let you know when they are ready for listening.
