helping kids make good choices podcast

In this episode of the Healthy Family Project, we talk to Marc Mero, Former WWE Wrestling Champion and Author of “How to be the Happiest Person on the Planet.” Marc shares ways parents can stay involved in their kids lives, how to navigate social media usage, and how to help kids dealing with bullying. 

Marc Mero reached the pinnacle of sports-entertainment success – then lost it all – but in the process discovered what’s most important in life. Marc shares his captivating journey with audiences worldwide and inspires people to examine their life choices.

As the founder of the nonprofit organization, Champion of Choices, Marc dedicates his life to helping others be the “Champion” they’re destined to be. Through his organization and school presentations, Marc empowers students to make positive choices.
