Dying To Ask

How To Be More Hopeful With Author Annette Roberts-Murray

January 6, 2022

Finding clarity through pandemonium — that's what a school principal did in a new kids' book about the pandemic.

Annette Roberts-Murray is an elementary school principal.

She is one of the most positive, hopeful people I've interviewed on this show.

In this episode, she'll share her hacks for hopefulness.

One of those hacks is to be of service to people who need help.

A Zoom call with her nephew about his experiences of pandemic life mirrored frustrations Annette was already seeing in her school.

Annette wrote Pandemonium to make kids feel seen and heard and also to let them know they are not alone in how they feel.

The reality is that adults draw on decades of life experience to get through hard times.

Kids don't have that luxury and skyrocketing rates of pediatric depression and anxiety prove they're struggling to process two years of pandemic life.

Feeling a little down these days? Struggling as a parent? Annette Roberts-Murray will get you back on track.

On this Dying to Ask:

  • How Annette decided to write her book and her goals for Pandemonium
  • A reality check on what she's seeing in schools and her hacks for staying hopeful.
  • And what Annette does in her free time helps her mental health and might make her the coolest principal ever.
