In episode 422 of Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things, we are back with our Wednesday segment where I chat with psychologists, therapists, neuroscientists and other experts on the science of personal growth. The month of May will focus on why empathetic kids succeed in our all about me world and features educational psychologist, parenting and child expert and the author of "Unselfie", Dr. Michele Borba.
This episode is about why courage is trainable and how to ignite it. She talks about an experiment she conducted on the television show Dateline with kids to showcase how courage can be taught, why emotional literacy, morals and perspective are necessary for courage, why we need to remind kids that it's important to stand up and speak out and not wait for someone else to do it, why introverts and extroverts are courageous, how to use CALM to be courageous and how parents can raise more courageous kids.
