Emergency Alert: The U.S. Surgeon General declared an “epidemic of loneliness and isolation.”

Did you struggle in the traditional education system? Do you know a child who currently struggles? Is it likely that this child believes that this struggle is 100% due to their deficiency? Could this belief lead them to rebellious behavior, mental health concerns, isolation, or feeling alone?

Working directly with students and their families as a teacher for 20 years allowed me to see this emergency unfold and taught me how to fight back. We must admit that the traditional system needs a significant upgrade, and we cannot wait another day because lives are at stake!

The many struggling students need to know that they are not alone and that sitting at a desk for 6, 7, or 8 hours a day might not help bring out the best in them. Students need someone to count on, who can help them navigate the challenges and opportunities in front of them.

u003cstrongu003eCould hearing this from the right person have a strong, positive impact on Johnny’s life?u003c/strongu003e

Johnny, I see that you have been getting in some trouble and your grades are suffering. I do notice that you have a lot of energy, and sitting at a desk most of the day is probably difficult for you. There are many students just like you! I’ll bet that your true potential will emerge once you have an opportunity to learn in a more hands-on environment and burn off some of that energy in a healthy way. u003cstrongu003eCan we make this deal, Johnny?u003c/strongu003e While we try hard to create more opportunities for you to learn in a more hands-on environment, would you try to take advantage of the opportunities that you do have every day to develop critical life skills? Opportunities like improving time management, developing people skills, and strengthening that critical muscle of u0022self-disciplineu0022 (just do it, even when you don’t feel like it) are a few examples. Those u0022musclesu0022 will help you to succeed better as a friend, father, or in any career path that you choose. Last but not least, by choosing to do the harder things now, you are setting yourself up for lifelong happiness, which is 1000 times greater than a quick laugh today. u003cstrongu003eDo we have a deal, Johnny?u003c/strongu003eu003cbru003eu003cbru003eI have had that very conversation with many students and it works! Why does it work? First, it helps Johnny to see the main opportunities that he has every day to become better in ANY career and improve his chance of u003cemu003elong-termu003c/emu003e happiness. Second, when he hears that he’s not alone and the reason is at least partially due to a system that needs improvement, he opens up his ears to listen!
