Parenting Bright Kids Who Struggle in School
About The Episode
It’s hard to see our child struggling in school without comparing them to other kids or wanting to “fix” them. But once we recognize that there is no such thing as average, we can learn to appreciate our children’s differences, understand their challenges and foster their strengths. Today’s podcast guest, Dewey Rosetti, is a parent of a child with dyslexia and the author of a new book, Parenting Bright Kids who Struggle in School. She shares her experiences as a mom, an author and an advocate for the 1 in 5 with learning differences, and offers advice for parents to help develop and celebrate their children’s unique strengths.
Parent Advocate and Author
As the mom of a daughter with dyslexia, Dewey Rosetti knows first-hand that having a child with a learning difference can take as big a toll on their confidence as their report card. But as an LD advocate and author, she also knows that normal doesn’t exist and neurodiversity can lead to brilliance. In today’s podcast episode, we sat down with Dewey to glean her best advice for parents to support their bright kids who are struggling in school. Our favorite takeaway? “If you can think about seeing your child as an individual with his own strengths and challenges and not be swept up in competing with the kid who happens to think the way the classroom is designed…that is the road to his success.” Tune in to hear more!
