Dr. Michele Borba on Thrivers

Intentional Performers with Brian Levenson

Michele Borba, Ed.D. is an educational psychologist, former classroom teacher and Mom who has spoken to over one million parents and educators in 19 countries. She is recognized for her solution-based strategies on raising resilient kids, and recipient of the Sanford N. McDonnell Lifetime Achievement Award in Character Education. Dr. Borba has appeared over 150 times on the TODAY show and featured in outlets including New York Times, Dr. Phil, Washington Post, Time, and Dateline. She has written 24 books, translated in 20 languages, with her latest being Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine. Michele had a number of amazing insights during our conversation. Some of them include: “It’s a different world that we’re raising our children in than in what we grew up in” (8:00). “Our kids will be faced with adversity. We can’t sugarcoat it. We can’t rescue them. We have to prepare them for life” (9:00). “The highest correlation with [adverse mental health outcomes] is how we deal with negative experiences” (11:05). “The first thing we need to do is help our kids learn to handle adversity, because everybody is going to have a negative experience” (11:15). “Let’s start being preventative” (12:00). “It’s not one challenge that bothers us, it’s the build-up” (13:20). “Thrivers are made, not born” (13:40). “Resilience is teachable” (16:15). “The thing that’s going to keep [kids’] passion alive, their grit alive, is knowing who they are” (19:25). “Figure out who your kid is, not who you want them to become” (19:40). “That’s when your grit is the strongest, when you’re doing something you love” (20:55). “You have to feel compassionate for yourself. If you feel okay about who you are and take care of you and your own needs, you’re actually going to be more likely to reach out and feel for another person” (25:45). “Are you managing your stress and taking care of yourself? Because if you don’t, your stress feeds over to your kids” (31:10). “Breathe so your kids can breathe” (31:40). “You need to recognize your own stress level” (33:00). “Find what works for you and stick to it as a routine and a ritual” (34:00). “A sense of hope is core to resilience” (36:00). “Ordinary things can be extraordinary and make extraordinary magic in overcoming adversity” (46:15). “We’ve got to give our kids a repertoire of coaching strategies and buffers. They’re all teachable” (46:40). “Empathy and curiosity are powerful together” (55:30). “When stress builds, curiosity goes down” (59:30). “We’re more curious when we’re with other people” (1:01:15). “You’ve got to make failure an option. You’re never going to get better if you can’t make a mistake” (1:02:15). Additionally, if you’d like to do so you can connect with Michele here!

#118 The Unselfie | Michele Borba, EDD

SuperPsyched © with Dr. Adam Dorsay

If I asked you what leads to success, what would you say? I imagine most of us think about schooling, work experience, and the quality of our social networks. But there are other things that really matter here. Research reveals a huge predictor of success is empathy, and that is the subject of this episode. As you will hear, empathy has an abundance of positive outcomes that improve our work lives, personal lives, and our overall health. Yet, sadly, there is an ongoing empathy crisis today and research is showing that the skill of empathy is dwindling in the face of social media and the overwhelming abundance of information today. Thankfully, help is here! Dr. Michelle Borba (https://micheleborba.com/) has been described by CNN as “[The] go-to parent expert,” and by the Today Show as “The Mommy Whisperer.” She’s the author of several books including, UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World. I loved her book as have numerous luminaries, thought leaders, and book reviewers at the highest levels. I am so grateful that you will have the pleasure of learning about empathy with Michele as she outlines why empathy matters and how to cultivate this game changing skill.

The Whole Child Prayer Integrity CONNECT with Dr. Michele Borba BOOK: Thrivers "Resilient parents raise resilient kids." ~ Dr. Michele Borba #MyStrengthIsMyStory #CreateYourNow #Thrivers Quotes and statements within the interview: "I thrive on research." "It was ordinary things that their parents or Great Aunt Sally or teacher did to help instill them a sense of 'who I am' and those became extraordinary when they faced adversity." One mother said, "If I had it all over again, I would have raised him for resilience." "But our kids need more than GPA. They need a different set of knowledge and THRIVERS is trying to give them what else they need." "First of all, you always have some kind of a caring adult champion in your life who refuses to give up on them." "I love telling kids that success is a 4-letter word spelled g-a-i-n." "So you'll find dozens of pieces of science-backed research on really what makes successful peak performers but they're the same traits that also make resilient kids." "Confidence is a strong self-understanding of who you are." "The best way we now know to teach empathy is by role-playing it or in the heat of the moment."  "Outside people are enormously powerful to kids as well." "Repeat what matters most so much so your kids become it!" What has your story gifted you? Hope "I am so optimistic about all of this even though I see doom and gloom stuff." "All we need to do is just put it under our parenting agenda." "If we get on board with like-minded other moms and dads, teachers, and grandparents, that's what this is all about."

Michele Borba, Thrivers (020)


On January’s episode of PrepTalks, Ned talks with Michele Borba, expert parenting consultant and the author of 25 books, most recently, Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine (coming out in paperback in March). They dive into Michele’s research into the seven traits — confidence, empathy, self-control, integrity, curiosity, perseverance, and optimism — that allow kids to roll with the punches, navigate our challenging times, and succeed in life. They also discuss the important point that these traits can be taught to children and young adults, and indeed, that it’s essential that parents and educators do teach these skills. Follow Ned on Twitter at @nedjohnson and Michele at @micheleborba.
