School psychologists work to support individual students through various developmental and mental health issues. Given the amount of time children are in school, and how school plays a large influence on a child (physically, emotionally, behaviorally), not to mention the personal struggles that surface such as the home environment or learning disabilities, there is no doubt a school psychologist is of immense value. “You’ve come to expect the unexpected”.
On this episode of the Baby Steps Nutrition Podcast, Argavan speaks with Dr. Allan Gold, a school psychologist for the Reed Union School District in Tiburon, California for almost 46 years. This means he has worked with Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millenials and Gen Zs. Dr. Gold graduated with a Ph.D in Educational Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley in 1978. In this eye-opening episode, Argavan and Dr. Gold discuss why modern day parenting is harder than it has ever been, the behavioral and emotional challenges children exhibited after returning to school in person once stay-at-home orders were lifted and how our digital world is impacting the way kids think and behave, and what we, as parents, need to do starting today. If you are a parent or work with school-age children, you absolutely don’t want to miss this very important discussion!
