These authors/experts freely have shared their expertise on a great many topics, all dedicated to the overall health, well-being and vitality of children, teens, and their families. I know I have grown in my own insights and sensitivities, especially as a grandfather.
A Major Change
Starting in February of 2018, I will no longer be adding new material to this blog and podcast site. As much as I have enjoyed hosting the site with quality programs, the investment of the time it required has been extensive.
(But I must admit I never put a clock on my time in securing an interview with an author/expert, or in reading their book completely, or in setting up and outlining the interview itself, or in conducting the interview and doing the technical stuff to post it … simply because I enjoyed it all so much. I treasure those experiences, and a number of the authors/experts I interviewed have become valued friends over the years, although we have never met in person.)
So, as I settle more into retirement and address some of the items on my “Someday I’ll …” list, I will not be adding anything additional to this site. For me, this is the right decision, and it’s the right time to make it.
Still a Goldmine
That said, six years of features on The Changing Behavior Network have become a goldmine of quality insight, advice and expert instruction. In fact, you can see some of them on the right side of this page. Just click on the book cover and experience an interview with that author/expert.
Like I said … a goldmine. From the beginning, we were careful to “tag” every interview and blog entry. Just write a related topic in the search box and watch what it brings. For instance, I put “resilience” in the search box, and up came 20 interviews and blogs that included that topic.
You can also click on the “Free Materials From Our Experts” link at the top of any page and you’ll find over four dozen complimentary materials ranging from ebooks to articles, to tips and videos, and even songs.
It’s About Them
I do plan on keeping and contributing to a “sister” site I started in 2006, It’s About Them. This site will be more personal in nature, personal as to my observations and experiences, and how they might impact our quality of life. I encourage you to follow it, and I hope you will share a comment from time to time.
The legendary Earl Nightingale once said this:
All healthy things are sweet-tempered.
Isn’t this true? (He had a knack for simply stating philosophies that so well-described humankind.) Anything we can do to “sweeten” kids and their families is a worthy venture. And I believe The Changing Behavior Network has played a part in this venture. My deepest thanks and appreciation go out to all that participated, as well as those who offered their hearty, continuing support. ###
