How to Help Your Shy Kid Become Confident and Bold with Fred Joyal

How to Help Your Shy Kid Become Confident and Bold with Fred Joyal

April 21, 2022

Don’t you want your child to follow their dreams and seize all the opportunities that life has to offer? Try new things, explore the world, start a new business, fall in love, and become the best possible version of themselves? In order for that to happen, we need to set a good example for them and create an environment where they can thrive!

The problem is - being bold isn’t always easy! Boldness is confidence in action. Take risks. Try something new!

Fred Joyal is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and business advisor. He co-founded the most successful dentist referral service in the country, 1-800-DENTIST. He has previously written two books on marketing, has dabbled in standup and improv comedy, acted in bad movies and excellent TV commercials. His latest book, Superbold: from Under-confident to Charismatic in 90 days, is an Amazon and Wall Street Journal bestseller. He once beat Sir Richard Branson in chess and was also a question on Jeopardy. He is an avid cyclist, a below-average tennis player and an even worse golfer. He lives in Los Angeles and skipped 2nd grade because he was so smart.

Bold individuals seize life in remarkable, almost unbelievable ways. They succeed in business, in careers, and in love, and they have a great time doing it. Bold people walk up to supermodels and ask them to dance. They stand in front of audiences and tell jokes. They start companies. They run for president.

What surprises most people is that boldness can be taught. Fred Joyal started as an extremely shy person, too timid even to make a phone call, and transformed himself into someone who has done stand-up and improv comedy, spoken to audiences of 5,000, met dozens of celebrities, and, just by being bold, found love, joy, passion, and success.

And he’s here today to teach you how and in this episode you will learn:

  • Fred’s regrets from not being bold early on in life
  • How Fred grew up shy and how his mother did it all wrong
  • Whether we are born with confidence and boldness?
  • The difference between boldness and confidence
  • Tips to enhance social skills right away and how can we use them with kids and teens

“Nobody trains us to do what we do most and that is interact with people.” Fred Joyal

Live in the Moment Mindfully, not Mindlessly with Teen Author Maya Maymin

Live in the Moment Mindfully, not Mindlessly with Teen Author Maya Maymin

April 15, 2022

Maya co-authored a book on mindfulness for teens with Dr. Ellen Langer, (Mother of Mindfulness) Harvard Professor of Psychology. “Mindfulness for Middle Schoolers” https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08SPFCSP8/ 

Maya Maymin lives in New York and has written and published three books and given two lectures on mindfulness, one at a Wolfram Language Summer Camp and another on Harvard Zoom for middle schoolers. She has been working with Dr. Ellen Langer (the Mother of Mindfulness, Psychology Professor at Harvard) for about a year and a half and they wrote a book together on mindfulness for middle schoolers.

You will learn in this episode:

  • What is mindfulness?
  • How Maya got into mindfulness?
  • The purpose of her book, “Mindfulness for Middle Schoolers” 
  • What counterforward is
  • The difference between mindful memorization and mindless memorization
  • Examples and exercises to practice mindfulness

“To stop being mindless, start noticing new things. Mindfulness as we study it, is the simple process of actively noticing new things. When you are noticing new things, that puts you in the present, makes you more aware of context, and that active noticing is the essence of engagement. When people are actively noticing, they become more energized. When you are actively noticing and being mindful, people find you more attractive, see you as charismatic, see you as trustworthy.” - Dr. Ellen Langer

Teen Substance Abuse - What Every Parent NEEDS To Know with Richard Capriola

Teen Substance Abuse - What Every Parent NEEDS To Know with Richard Capriola

March 4, 2022

In Richard Capriola’s new book, “The Addicted Child” (2020) - he explains substances being used by today's adolescents and the addictions which accompany teen substance abuse, like self-harm and eating disorders. Richard Capriola has been a mental health and addictions counselor for over two decades. 

There are very few things more heart-wrenching for a family than having your child addicted to alcohol or drugs.

The most dangerous attitude a parent can have is thinking, “It could never happen to my child”.

If your child uses alcohol or drugs, you know how it affects your family. These substances enter your child’s brain and change their behavior. You want to help your child, but where do you begin? The Addicted Child is your roadmap. Learn what makes adolescent addiction different. How drugs can change your child’s brain and behaviors. The assessments and tests you should insist upon. And more.

Sadly, your desperate search for help often leaves you feeling alone and without a roadmap to guide you through the process of helping your child. The Addicted Child was written for you.

Richard Capriola is author of, "The Addicted Child" - a parent's guide to adolescent substance abuse. In Non-technical language parents learn how to identify and find treatment programs for their child. You will learn in this book the importance of comprehensive assessments - and what to look for in a counselor to know you're getting the right help.

The percentage of teens using illicit substances dropped significantly in 2021 as the pandemic forced them into isolating from friends, classrooms and extracurricular activities. Alcohol, marijuana and nicotine vaping – the most commonly used substances by teens all showed declines from 2020. These findings were reported by a Monitoring the Future survey conducted by the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research – http://www.monitoringthefuture.org.

   Two issues drive teen substance use: drug availability and perception of risk.

Learn in this episode:

  • Every child is vulnerable, no matter who they are or what status they have in society, by being captured by substance abuse
  • Warning signs a parent should be aware of
  • Drugs kids are using today and what’s changed last few years
  • How the pandemic has impacted kid’s drug use
  • If I suspect my child is using/abusing, what is the first thing I should do
  • What causes a child to explore or get caught up in marijuana
  • The most dangerous attitude a parent can have is thinking, “It could never happen to my child”
