How to Keep the Lights On with Julia Black
November 10, 2020
My guest today, Julia Black was faced with a very real problem to solve. Her daughter was struggling at school. She felt fenced in, crushed and dispirited. The light inside her 7 year old child, for learning, had gone out. What would you do if you were in that situation? For Julia, she knew something had to change. And so she took action. She and her family spent the next 12 years on an amazing real-world adventure exploring cutting-edge educational practices, neuroscientific developments and mental wellbeing research. And the good news is that she found a way to transform children who were totally bored by what school has to offer and turn them into the most intrinsically motivated learners. Be aware - this is not for hands-off parents. To light up your child, you must first turn on the light in yourself, and that is challenging yet rewarding work. Fortunately, Julia has transformed thousands of families through her Lights On® Academy. They are leading more positive, creative and happy lives because of it. This is one of the most valuable interviews I've done on this show. Enjoy!
