Hi there! How are you doing?

I know this can be a stressful time in the academic year, but I promise, we’ll all get through it!

Today’s video is, in part, about “getting through it,” and ways we might better prepare ourselves (if we’re students) or our students (if we’re educators or parents) to stick it out when things are tough.

The question I’m asking is, “what if we nurtured a ‘repair culture’ in our classrooms, coaching practices, or homes?” Never heard of a repair culture? Wanna’ know how it compares with the maker culture you probably have heard of?

Check it out here in this five-minute and 46-second video:

So what do you think?

If you’re a student, does a repair culture sound interesting? Would you be willing to participate in one? How do you think you’d feel in a repair culture in contrast to the culture in your school now? What could you do to cultivate a repair culture for yourself?

If you’re an educator or coach, what would a repair culture look like in your classroom or in your coaching?

Or if you’re a parent, how could you foster this kind of culture in your home? How comfortable are you with staying with something that’s broken long enough to find creative solutions, and how can you involve the whole family in seeking those solutions?

I would LOVE to hear your thoughts on this! Send me a message at officewiz@gretchenwegner.com and let me know what comes up for you and what questions you have.

And, don’t forget, I have resources for you if you’re in the solution-seeking phase! You can join me at my next live Q&A event and ask me your question by signing up here (it’s for students, parents, educators, and coaches).

If you’d like my Study Cycle Action Guide, grab that here.

If you need to have all the resources in place so you can “get in gear,” I can help with that here.

And if your nervous system is maxed out and you need some help returning to a calmer state, get my Anti-boring Approach to Nervous System Regulation here.

As always, I am wishing you well!

P.S. Already know you want to start the next semester on a good footing and have questions about how to do it? Join me at my next live Q&A event where we’ll be discussing exactly that!
