For the month of August our conversations on the podcast will help parents transition their families into a new and very different school year.

Christine Duvivier students strengths

My guest for today’s episode is Christine Duvivier. Christine Duvivier is an international speaker, author and positive change mentor. She speaks, teaches and coaches for organizations, leaders, students and communities that are ready to think beyond traditional myths that hold us back and want to use positive practices to tap into the powerful energy available to them so that they live into more of their true spirits and who they ultimately want to be. She holds an MBA and a Masters degree in Positive Psychology.

Christine and I discuss:

  • The myth of the bad student, the myth of the good student and the myth of the best system and how it’s impacting our kids
  • Why our current system of schooling can lead to depression for some students and what we can do about it
  • 7 hidden gifts and how we uncover them
  • Helping our kids become more confident and resilient in school

Quotes from the episode:

“The system is structured in a way and teaches thought patterns that cause depression and anxiety.” – Christine Duvivier

“We don’t really have any control over what our kids think…what’s interesting is how much impact we have.” – Christine Duvivier

“I think it’s so empowering when you take control as a parent of yourself and decide I’m going to define how I want to think about this (my child and their strengths) and I don’t want other people defining it for me. ” – Christine Duvivier
