A Message For Kids: You Don't Need To Be Fixed

 

A Message For Kids: You Do Not Need To Be Fixed 

A lot of young people feel misunderstood and judged. They go through life feeling like everyone is trying to fix them. So I recorded this short podcast to tell young people the truth: 

(1) You do not need to be fixed and there is nothing wrong with your brain.

(2) You have unique advantages that others don't have. You can hyperfocus on what you are curious about, and possess the initiative and strategic skills necessary to be a leader. You have everything you need to be wildly successful and happy.

After you listen to it first as the parent, let your kids listen. We think they will find it helpful and insightful.
