100 Questions to Ask Your Teen

100 Questions to Ask Your Teen

Hello Fans of Learning :-)

This article from Psychology Today is fantastic.

Instead of the old and tired question, "How was school today?" David Rettew M.D. wrote a wonderful article about 100 Questions to Ask Your Teen.

As a parent, we need to keep it real.

And not boring.

  • What do you think of my hair style?
  • What would you wish I might do differently as a parent?
  • Do you think adults praise kids too much or not enough?
  • What is the one thing you don’t know about me that you want to know?
  • What was the funniest thing that happened today?
  • Do you like your voice?
  • Where’s the first place you would want to go after getting your driver’s license?
  • Are you satisfied with the number of friends that you have and quality of those friendships?
  • What were some of best holiday or birthday presents you ever received?

Obviously, there are many more questions. I've actually asked many on his list. You need a thick skin for some of them, and an open mind.

We can all improve at anything and everything, and at the same time, we are all doing our best each and every day.

Take care,

Heidi Nord

People with dyslexia need multisensory reading instruction.

What does this mean?

Instead of a "Charlie Brown" teacher, "Blah, Blah, Blahing..." in front of the classroom, students are encouraged, no they MUST, see, say, and feel all of the sounds. And, they use their hands, manipulatives, different writing surfaces, and writing tools to assist with their memory.

This video shows how students can start differentiating between certain sounds. Usually just 2 sounds are taught at once, but in this video, many sounds are taught, as it is a demonstation video for teachers.

Here at The Brilliant Dyslexic, as the founder of the company, I believe in the power of dyslexia. When I say dyslexia is a great asset, I really believe it with my whole mind and heart.

All you really need to do is look at most successful people in the world, and they usually wither have dyslexia or ADD/ADHD, or both!
