Digging Deeper into Education
With constant bounds in technology and its use in classrooms and homes, education has been impacted on multiple levels for the good and the bad. Take a look at this article from HEROES Academy and see one perspective on teaching children, specifically gifted children, in a manner that they can use inside the classroom and out. For a deeper look into advocating for your children in school, check out the book “Academic Advocacy for Gifted Children” (http://bit.ly/AcademicAdvocacy).
“What did you learn in school today?” a mom asks her son after school each day and receives the same nonchalant response, “I don’t know. Nothing.” The conversation is ritually cut off by a dismissive shrug of the boy’s shoulders.

Conquering the Worry Monster: Daniel Peters on ‘Make Your Worrier a Warrior’ in an interview on Examiner.com
1) Why did you write these books for parents and children?
I have been working with kids and families for years on battling anxiety, fear, and the Worry Monster, as well as speaking on the topic to parents and teachers. People kept saying, “Where can I get your books?” I finally realized that while there are many good books out there on the topic, there was not one that simply described how anxiety works, and specific strategies for countering worry and fear (the Worry Monster) in a user-friendly way. I realized it was time for me to put what I do every day into a book that parents could use, and kids themselves could relate to, in order to take on the Worry Monster down.
I have seen the strategies in this book help so many people and wanted these tools to be available to everyone looking for help.
