On being more effective in supporting a studying teen with Lee Elliot Major

As we ring in the new year, we’re often symbolically determined to make a fresh start. For thousands of students, there’s renewed vigour – if not enthusiasm – to revise. And a correlated number of parents who are promising to make sure that they do. But you can’t expect a change by doing the same things, so what is it that’ll make this year’s study resolutions stick?

This week’s guest is Lee Elliot Major. Lee is the Professor of Social Mobility at the University of Exeter. He’s also the author of “The Good Parent Educator“.

Lee discusses the ways in which parents can support their teens. Amongst other issues, we hear about the parenting dilemma around involvement and the importance of nurturing self-esteem.

In this third season of the podcast, Nathan – founder of The Study Buddy – will be talking to parents, students and teachers about GCSE and A Level exams in 2022. Sharing these real-life experiences will confirm we’re not alone and should also provide plenty of advice and tips when it comes to supporting our own teens.
