How to Connect with Kids These Days: Online Course

The kids are the least of our worries.

Seriously. If that sounds blasphemous in a course for concerned parents and educators (and anyone, really, who worries about connecting with “kids these days”), then I am so glad you’re here.

If you know a kid, work with a kid, or love a kid, you will find something inspiring and practical in this course. Dare I say game-changing.

This course was born from the hundreds of stories of kids, their families, and their support systems I was lucky to meet as I worked across Canada and the USA. Regardless of who I met or where I met them, the message was always the same: our kids are okay ONLY if those of us holding them are okay.

During the developmental years, schools—and educators—are the most significant connection point to most every child on this continent. But are the educators okay? I believe that most of the great educators want to make a difference. Many tell me, however, that they are finding it more and more difficult “these days” to love what they do. I think it’s time we did a better job of looking after them. First. Plain and simple.

This course is for the parents and educators: our teachers, bus drivers, administrators, educational assistants, librarians, administrative assistants, and custodians. And anyone who leads, loves, and supports them. If that’s you, I am so grateful you are here.

I took the VIP Course: How to Connect with Kids These Days. Jody’s course is candid, honest & to the point. No B.S. She makes it totally relatable & fun. As a parent who has seen my own children struggle in all of this, I would encourage EVERYONE to take this course! You can do it at your own leisure & take away the important points. I will certainly take more of Jody’s courses in the future. Thanks Jody!

I am a huge fan of Dr. Jody. I took her course, How to connect with kids these days and also have her book. Since I am working with many grade levels, I thought her knowledge was relevant. Dr. Jody presents the material with humour and lots of positive energy. Her words and thoughts have been extremely helpful. I highly recommend taking Dr. Jody's course, buying her books and learning from a super lady! Thank you Dr. Jody!

I bought the book Kids These Days and then did the online course. I loved the online course! Listening to Dr. Jody talk about each chapter and being able to stop, take notes and then continue was awesome. Some chapters I listened to more than once, there was always something else to learn from the chapters/topics by listening to them a second time.
