I recently had such a meaningful discussion with Paula Phillips from On the Right Road regarding stress and executive function and its effect on learning, and motivation.
After a year of pandemic living and online learning, a whole lot of kids (and adults) have been hitting a “fatigue wall”. There are many related reasons, but in general, the “wall” has to do with the executive function part of our brains.
Listen to the Podcast below to learn how stress effects executive function and how this effects focusing, planning, attention, problem solving, time management, and goal setting and learn how help yourself or your child get unstuck!
