Stuart Udell shares tips on how to keep kids engaged over the summer and how Achieve300's services provide reading material delivered in different reading levels. He shares how important it is to allow students to pick and choose things that they enjoy reading in a variety of formats. Now, more than ever, it is important for students to have literacy skills as they are central to careers, internships, and learning growth. The digital world keeps us from having to spell words correctly or type out a complete sentence so it's important to help your student to be literate without a device doing things for them.To learn more, visit www.achieve3000.comLearn from Smart Social's resources: Join our free newsletter for parents and educators: https://smartsocial.com/newsletter/Register for a free online Parent Night to learn the hidden safety features on popular apps: https://smartsocial.com/social-media-webinar/Become a Smart Social VIP (Very Informed Parents) Member and unlock 30+ workshops (learn online safety and how to Shine Online™): https://learn.smartsocial.com/Download the free Smart Social app: https://smartsocial.com/appLearn the top 100 popular teen apps: https://smartsocial.com/app-guide-parents-teachers/View the top parental control software: https://smartsocial.com/parental-control-software/Learn the latest Teen Slang, Emojis & Hashtags: https://smartsocial.com/teen-slang-emojis-hashtags-list/Get ideas for offline activities for your students: https://smartsocial.com/offline-activities-reduce-screentime/Get Educational Online Activity ideas for your students: https://smartsocial.com/offline-activities-reduce-screentime/2020 Ultimate Guide To Child Sex Trafficking, Human Trafficking, Sextortion, & Online EnticementSubscribe to our podcast on:Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id1269872857Spotify Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/7qARbijEjiTHlttMaa2sZd?si=7AUFWl6PSQmBsq8DEjDghwYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SafeSmartSocial/videos

Cyberloafing is a term used to describe the habit of using social media without a specific intention, often to procrastinate throughout the day.  While some argue that a limited amount of cyberloafing can help students and employees rebound from stressful or difficult situations, it is very hard to recognize when scrolling social media goes past a relaxing period and into the zone of procrastinating responsibilities. Read more on our blog about social media jet lag and cyberloafing.Learn from Smart Social's resources: Join our free newsletter for parents and educators: https://smartsocial.com/newsletter/Register for a free online Parent Night to learn the hidden safety features on popular apps: https://smartsocial.com/social-media-webinar/Become a Smart Social VIP (Very Informed Parents) Member and unlock 30+ workshops (learn online safety and how to Shine Online™): https://learn.smartsocial.com/Download the free Smart Social app: https://smartsocial.com/appLearn the top 100 popular teen apps: https://smartsocial.com/app-guide-parents-teachers/View the top parental control software: https://smartsocial.com/parental-control-software/Learn the latest Teen Slang, Emojis & Hashtags: https://smartsocial.com/teen-slang-emojis-hashtags-list/Get ideas for offline activities for your students: https://smartsocial.com/offline-activities-reduce-screentime/Get Educational Online Activity ideas for your students: https://smartsocial.com/offline-activities-reduce-screentime/2020 Ultimate Guide To Child Sex Trafficking, Human Trafficking, Sextortion, & Online EnticementSubscribe to our podcast on:Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/id1269872857Spotify Podcast: https://open.spotify.com/show/7qARbijEjiTHlttMaa2sZd?si=7AUFWl6PSQmBsq8DEjDghwYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SafeSmartSocial/videos

We learn from the co-founders the history of this platform, where it began, and how it grew from 2007 until today. Parenting then (pre-social media) was too “judgy and preachy”; Your Teen didn’t want to be that to its followers. Instead, the founders sought to offer real, honest support, showing the rough spots and addressing the truth in their mission with articles by a team of real parents and parenting experts. The women discuss the complexities of raising middle school girls in particular and how they arm parents with information in advance of arriving at that delicate parenting stage, and about some dos and don’ts involved in the college process.Visit their website and subscribe to their newsletter at https://yourteenmag.com  Join our free newsletter: https://smartsocial.com/newsletter/​ Take one of our 30+ additional courses on the latest teen apps: https://learn.smartsocial.com/​ Download the Smart Social app: https://smartsocial.com/app​ Learn the top 100 popular teen apps: https://smartsocial.com/app-guide-par...​ View the top parental control software: https://smartsocial.com/parental-cont...​ Learn the top Teen Slang, Emojis & Hashtags: https://smartsocial.com/teen-slang-em...​ Get ideas for offline activities for your students: https://smartsocial.com/offline-activ...​ Subscribe to our podcast on: Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/i...​ Google Podcasts: https://play.google.com/music/listen?...​ Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/SafeSmar...​ Download the Smart Social app https://smartsocial.com/smart-social-...​ Learn the top 100 popular teen apps: https://smartsocial.com/app-guide-par...​  Schools & Educators: Schedule a free phone consultation to get ideas on how to protect your students and community https://smartsocial.com/hire-us/

Jessica talks about the damaging effects of "outcome love"--the kind of love that shows up when kids have accomplished something. She encourages parents instead to focus on the long haul--on the learning and the growth that kids experience throughout their childhood and adolescence. She gives great advice on developing positive relationships with teachers, expressing gratitude, and even the benefits of quitting. About our guest: Jessica is an educator, speaker, and writer. She has been an English, Latin, and writing teacher in middle and high school for more than a decade and writes the biweekly “Parent-Teacher Conference” advice column for the NYT, is a contributing writer at the Atlantic, and appears as a commentator on Vermont Public Radio.

Kelly talks about really listening to our kids and the importance of doing so without the goal of fixing. While it is soothing for us, she says, to solve problems for our kids, it is ten times more soothing to know that they can problem-solve for themselves. Truly listening allows parents to get to "the thing behind the thing behind the thing"--what kids are really trying to convey. Kelly tackles the power of saying "no," and reflects on how developing this skill has added so much freedom to her life, and she gets candid about looking back on the way she was raised to inform her own parenting. She delivers her musings, observations, and wisdom with humility, humor, and a great talent for relatability.About our guest:Kelly Corrigan is the author of four New York Times bestselling memoirs, earning her the title of “The Poet Laureate of the ordinary” from the Huffington Post and the “voice of a generation” from O Magazine.  She is curious and funny and eager to go well past the superficial in every conversation.  She also has a new PBS TV show called Tell Me More and a podcast, Kelly Corrigan Wonders: https://www.kellycorrigan.com/podcastAbout our hosts: Jenn Curtis, MSW, Educational Consultant, author, and speaker, owner of FutureWise Consulting.

They espouse the value of open lines of communication among family members during the stressful process of applying to college, and their 5 conversations give families the roadmap to approach it with intention, setting appropriate boundaries as they do so.
