    Listen to What Your Kids Aren't Telling You
Dr. Pritchard offers an entertaining yet powerfully inspiring message to educate his
adult audiences. Michael wants to prevent the unaddressed grief of children from
turning to anger, rage and violence as they grow older. Youth may not be telling
you all of the funny, sad, painful, or wonderful things going on in their lives. Or
maybe you're just not listening! Michael has listened and he has some wonderful
stories to tell.... stories about your kids that you need to know.


 Michael Pritchard is - America’s nationally acclaimed keynote speaker, wellness coach
 and youth guidance motivator. Traveling coast to coast, Michael Pritchard uses humor to
 educate his audiences on: life skills, anti- bullying, improving communications, violence
 prevention, social emotional learning and instilling new dedication to both work and
 school. Michael Pritchard’s seven Emmy nominated educational series for PBS and
 distribution has been seen by millions and focuses on youth guidance. During his
 professional comedy career he has shared the stage with Robin Williams, Jerry Seinfeld,
 Jay Leno and Whoppi Goldberg. He’s done voices for Star Wars and Sesame Street.
