John Mavros Tackles Success of Children, Family, and Education on Different Brains®

An African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child.” Clearly, it’s not just parenthood but also family, education, and community that are factors and contributors to a child’s success.  

John Mavros has been an educator since his early college years and was a guidance counselor when he retired. Even after retirement, he has continued to use educational concepts forming non-profit organizations on family services. It was also then that he realized the importance of family in child-rearing. Eventually, with his unwavering focus on the youth, he was brought to the journey of writing his book Enough Iz Enough: How Parents and Teachers Can Regain Control. This is an addition to the juvenile research studies he had already done. He talks about his life’s work in this interview with Dr. Hackie Reitman of Different Brains®.

Gillian Stevens Opens the Discussion on Support for the Helpers

Taking care of one’s self is selfish? This is the society’s mindset that causes unnecessary guilt for helping professionals. At one point or another, we ourselves had been helpers – as parents to our kids or caregiver to our loved ones. When we are empathetic to others, we tend to sacrifice our own needs.  

These are exactly what Gillian Stevens had observed in her years of counseling and volunteering and after further studies on trauma, loss, and death. In her journey, she got led to the question of who are helping the helpers – the educators, the nurses, the doctors, the first responders. To find answers to this question and be part of the solution, she started writing her book Explore, Transform, Flourish: Support and Hope for Those Who Help Others (How Professionals Keep It Together). She talks about her...

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work


While exploring a tourist site in Malaysia recently I came upon a modern-day assembly line. I say ‘modern-day’ only because it happened recently. Truthfully, the assembly line was antiquated and it had no machines or technology.

The goal for this 10-man team was to take a pile of old bricks – thousands of old bricks and move them from an outside location, down some stairs to an inside location where they could be re-purposed into a new structure or be a part of a new wall.

Eight men all had the same job, catching the brick that was thrown to them and tossing it to the next man. The other two guys had slightly different responsibilities. The first guy in line had to grab a brick from the enormous pile and toss it to guy #2.

Number two passed it to #3 and so on until it got to guy #10.  He received the tossed brick from #9 and had to place it in a semi-neat pile so that the bricklayer could efficiently grab it and construct the wall. (When he eventually...

Remember your first kiss? Was it incredible or was it a disaster?  Either way I am betting you got better at it as time went by.

Remember the first time you had to ask for an order? Was it incredible or was it a disaster?  Either way I am betting you got better at it as time went by.  Or maybe not!

Over the years I have proven to be a pretty darn good salesman. Also, if you ask my wife, Anne, I’m sure she’d tell you I am a world-class kisser too!

Let’s go back to the kiss for a moment (it’s more fun).  When you are about to kiss someone you may experience butterflies, you lean in, your partner leans in, there’s hesitation, you make your move, your partner responds… and both parties engage in an amazing and mutually beneficial event – the perfect Kiss!

Now, let’s discuss asking for the order again. (You know what – that’s fun too! When it’s done right!) When you are about to ask for the...
