1. Building Emotional Agility in Children Jennifer Furlong 48:35

Studies have shown that by the time a child reaches the age of 18, they have heard negative phrases like, “don’t do” or “don’t say” over 150,000 times. In contrast, they have heard less than 2,000 words with positive associations like encouragement, self-worth, and belief. This ratio raises havoc on a child’s subconscious mind as they seek to mold their identity. Author Wade Bergner has written a series of books that are intended to reinforce a child’s unconditional self-worth and awaken their mind to the splendid mysteries hidden in everyday life! He does this by sharing entertaining stories of hope and resiliency and encouraging connections between children and their families.

Listen as Jennifer Furlong and Wade Bergner discuss how being diagnosed with a reading disability at a young age was the catalyst for Wade becoming an author and why he wants you to come to know your unconditional worth so that you can spread that message to others.
