This episode, educator, speaker, coach and author, Andy McNeilly, is back on the show to discuss his second book, ‘Connecting With Your Teens’.
In this conversation, Andy discusses the importance of teaching executive skills to children. He emphasises the significance of building strong relationships and using stories to illustrate important lessons. Andy also shares the value of playing games and engaging in activities as a family.
I love Andy’s advice of just leaving a game or two lying around as a way of gearing the environment towards supporting the activities you want to encourage. I definitely want to build more of these positive prompts into my life.
I hope you enjoy this chat with Andy McNeilly.
Have a great week.

Spriggy Debit Card
One of the things that’s worked really well for us is that the kids each have pre-paid Spriggy debit cards to keep their pocket money on.
Setting up an account in Australia usually costs $30 but use this link to receive $20 back when you first sign up (we also get a kickback to help fund the podcast).
Instead of your kids borrowing your debit or credit card to pay for things, especially when buying things online or as cash is something that’s hardly used now, try Spriggy.
You can link directly to your bank account and even give grandparents access in case they want to give money to your kids as well.
