The One About Adolescent Dating Violence

Teen dating violence (TDV) is a type of intimate partner violence that occurs between two people in a close relationship. Behaviors include physical violence, sexual violence, psychological aggression, and stalking and take place both in person and electronically. Research shows that TDV impacts students academically and can lead to depression and anxiety, unhealthy behaviors, and suicidal ideation.

In this episode sat down with high school counselors, Stephanie Threets and, Tiphynee Salazar, LPC. They shared information about identifying warning signs, talking to your kids about healthy relationships, and the impact of TDV on learning.

The One About Motivating By Personality

No two kids are alike, probably not even in your family. We were all given unique personalities that dictate how we react in certain situations and what drives us forward to accomplish a goal. As parents we want our kids to thrive academically and we are their chief motivators and accountability partners in that journey. Knowing what will ignite a joy of learning and desire for achievement in each of our kids is crucial to this process.

In this episode we are joined by Alisha Woodall, a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor from Finding The Foundation in Addison, TX.

The One About Bilingual and Dual Language Programs

Studies show that knowledge of a second language helps with problem-solving abilities, academic achievement, and communication skills. Having the ability to communicate in another language and having an understanding of that culture can also make you more attractive to potential employers.

Although much controversy surrounds bilingual education, several states mandate that public schools provide instruction in a student's native language. In addition, many districts see the value of dual language programs and provide them as an option for their students.

In this episode we sit down with Bilingual and Dual Language specialists from Mansfield ISD. Also joining me in the guest co-host chair is Amanda Ybarra, mom of 3 boys enrolled in a bilingual immersion charter school in Arlington, TX.
