Kids These Days

by Dr. Jody Carrington

The kids are the least of our worries. Seriously. If that sounds blasphemous in a book for concerned parents and educators (and anyone, really, who worries about “kids these days”), then I am so glad you’re here. 


If you own a kid, work with a kid, or love a kid, you will find something inspiring in the pages of my book: Kids These Days. Dare I say game-changing. 

A GAME PLAN FOR (RE)CONNECTING WITH THOSE WE TEACH, LEAD, & LOVE

This book is for our teachers, bus drivers, administrators, educational assistants, librarians, administrative assistants, and custodians. 


It's for anyone who leads, loves, and supports them. 


If that’s you, I am so grateful you are here.

About The Book

During the developmental years, schools—and educators—are the most significant connection point to most every child on this continent. Our kids are okay ONLY if those of us holding them are okay.

Our Kids Are Okay!

But are our educators really okay?

I believe that most of the great educators want to make a difference. Many tell me, however, that they are finding it more and more difficult “these days” to love what they do. It’s time we did a better job of looking after them. First. Plain and simple.

This book is your game plan!

A whole collection of words that will inspire you, and that will guide you in your work, your love, and your life.

As a child psychologist, I have assessed, treated, educated, and empowered some of the most vulnerable and precious souls on this planet—our kids. After 15 years, I’m here to tell you that the ones who hold our kids every day, are our biggest game changers. My mission has become to shift the way educators think and feel about the holy work they do, and to refocus us on supporting them in that work.
