What Nadine Levitt can say in an interview about
The Opportunity of Halloween to Help Kids Build Confidence
:

    • Halloween can be a scary time for kids, imaginations are vivid and there is little distinction between reality and fiction—especially when the world suddenly changes into a horror landscape!
    • But Halloween can also provide a fabulous opportunity to talk about fear, and what it does to other emotions. It is also a great time to distinguish the line between what is real and what is not, and shift the power back into their hands through creativity!

What Nadine Levitt can say in an interview about
Facebook and Our Emotional Response to Polarizing Content
:

Whistleblower Frances Haugen claims that the issue around Facebook allegedly knowingly causing harm is due to a conflict of interest between their growth in revenue and engagement and the public interest.

Hauge explained, “It is easier to entice people with anger.”

Author and education advocate Nadine Levitt would like to unpack why that is the case:

A new baby can come with lots of stress for lots of reasons, so every time you notice that you’ve overwhelmed, sad or anxious, stop for a moment and consider the origin of your overwhelm. Do you feel like you could pull out all of your hair when you look at your overflowing laundry basket? Do you become overwhelmed with dread when you think about needing to find something to cook and eat? Do you want to cry every time your baby cries? Is feeding your baby a daunting task??

What Carol Barkes can say in an interview on
the Benefits of Mediation
:

 1. Leave your people at home (this includes friends, your mom or dad, new girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband). Of course, these people are on your side but they are often blinded by their bias for you. They are not living your stress or paying your bills so their recommendations are often short-sighted and can leave parents dealing with ramifications they had not intended. They also tend to fire up the other side. Mediators do not need character references. Save that for court if all else fails.
