For episode 48 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interviewing Larry Slocum, Conscious Discipline Certified Instructor, whose personal mission is to provide guidance for parents & teachers on how to stay calm in the middle of chaos.  

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

Here are the highlights of our conversation:

  • growing up in Fremont, Michigan as one of 7 children
  • how he found role models in Boy Scouts and Young Life
  • how he developed a passion for helping youngsters by helping raise his younger brother Jeff
  • meeting his wife at Western Michigan University, in a very unique setting
  • getting into teaching and not being able to find a stable position
  • his career pivot into the insurance business, and the keys to success that Larry learned
  • after 25 years, he sold the insurance business and had another career pivot to Conscious Discipline, based on his three desires to teach, music, and work with children
  • new research on the heart, such as from heartmath.com and the importance of breathing
  • when you have chaos, use pictures
  • the problems with spanking
  • his role with the Oxford Farmer's Market
  • giving children choices with your directives
  • Larry's daily routine is focused on:  healthy diet; exercise; prayer & meditation
  • "decisions are power"
  • On his tombstone, Larry wants it to say "He was calm", because his calmness manifests itself onto others
  • Larry can be reached at 513.505.5238, or you can subscribe to his weekly newsletter by emailing him at larry@myschoolfamily.com

Thank you for listening, have a great day!
