Episode 55: Back to School with a Healthy Mindset

Studies show that 1 in 3 kids struggle with a mental health issue. Today, Michelle Nietert, a licensed counselor, speaker and podcaster, talks with us about how kids’ emotions are so important! Today, we are seeing anxiety and depression creep into our children’s lives because their emotions are DRIVING the bus instead of just riding on it. Listen in as Michelle and Lee discuss ways to help our kids be resilient and have a healthy mindset by redirecting their thoughts.

Ready … Let’s go….

MICHELLE NIETERT has been a licensed professional counselor for over 25 years and the coauthor of the award winning book Loved and Cherished: 100 Devotions for Girls, along with Make Up Your Mind: Unlock Your Thoughts, Transform Your Life and soon to be released God I Feel Sad: Bringing Big Emotions to a Bigger God series.
