My guest this week is a very good friend of the family. Nate Harrison is the founder of the daycare "Mile High Adventures." Located in the Denver Colorado metro area:

About Nate:

"I've been working with children since 1995; most often as a child care provider, and in 2011 I decided to go private after feeling that so many programs were focused on something other than families and children. 

I hold an elementary education degree in Colorado with a PE endorsement, won the State Pickleball Gold Medal in 2014 and 2015, am captain/coach of a men's ice hockey team at the Promenade (Four Championships and three 2nd place finishes in 9 seasons leading the team), and was PTA President at Ryan Elementary in Jefferson County from 2010-2012.

I've coached soccer, football, tennis, kayaking/canoeing, and hockey; am a rock climbing instructor for Westminster Rec, been a Girl Scout counselor (residential and day camp), the head instructor and run the snowboard department at SolVista Basin/Granby Ranch in Colorado for six seasons, and have worked in Indiana and Boston with children as a para, substitute teacher, and child care provider.

I have a 15 year old son who plays competitive hockey at Hyland Hills (MVP his second season; Captain in his 4th season), leading scorer for Standley Lake in his sophmore year - proud Dad moment, has won 5 state championships in flag football, (though he doesn't give enough credit to his handsome coach), plays lacrosse, and snowboards, wakesurfs, climbs, bikes, and pretty much plays any of the sports I do.

My guiding philosophy is having children being outside and active as much as possible.  This helps them gain independence, see the playground of nature, and create lasting memories."

 

Nate and his son Gabe are HUGE Denver Bronco fans and I wanted to ask Nate right off the bat (no pun intended) how they are dealing with no sports.

I do have to mention that Nate is an avid Pickleball player and yes, we do mock him about the sport. Then Nate got me on my lack of being very good at Scrabble.

There are some great tips from Nate to help parents out with getting our kids active during these unusual times.

Nate does mention someone on the radio named "Stink," who is former NFL player Mark Schlereth heard on 104.3 The Fan in Denver.

Nate's son Gabe has been doing online schools for a few years and he offers up one key way to help our kids with getting through each school day.

Have an open and honest dialog with your kids was something that really stood out to me that Nate talked about.

We both agreed that our American school system is broken. Our hope is that schools will recognize this and make changes. If you want to contribute to Nate's cause after listen to this episode to start his own school PLEASE do so. His daycare is very cutting edge but also logical and a better way to teach kids.

Even Seth Godin thinks that our school system is in need of repair.
