    Just listened to Dr Jane Bluestein. Great interview Marlaine. Thank you for bringing this to the notice of teachers everywhere.

    She is fresh, and genuine – every word is sincere.

    It is not just for teachers. Every one of us has moments when they encounter an opportunity to be positive for their child. . . . a big hug for my (taller than me now) boy who went off to sit an exam at 9.30 this morning. It doesn’t stop even when they are teenagers

    Just listened to Prentis and Parrott – what a duo ! Every word was true, and I love their way of introducing mindfulness into the conversation – ‘mindfulness should be in the water that they drink in every classroom’. I wish I’d thought of that.

    Naming the emotion is so important, and they quite rightly focus on that – but they don’t shy away from the topic of a dynamic and on-the-ground resolution of where the teacher’s influence and input ends and the home’s responsibility begins. . . they were so right of course, the approach should be collaborative. If just five teachers listen, Marlaine, and do five things that these women said, then the lives of five children will improve – and that starts making a dent in the work of ‘raising humanity’ because just think how many people those five children will encounter ! You do good work, girl.

    I loved the interview with Dr. Lynne Kenney. She’s so on-target and doing such important work.

    The Global Presence Public Service Interviews is an outstanding podcast series! A great way to shine a bright light on emotional literacy. I especially like the way Marlaine handles the interviews – knowledgeable, engaged with the discussion while staying focused on the guest and moving the conversation forward.
