We have seen first-hand the difference this is making in our Early Years Programs. Tools for Life offers a variety of strategies that can be used to support the development of self-regulation skills, resiliency and confidence in your children.
All Feelings are OK. There are no right or wrong feelings. But children need to learn how to express them in appropriate ways that will not harm others or themselves. The new My Feelings Children’s Book Series will help very young children (ages 2 to 6) to identify and manage their feelings and the feelings of others.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many stressors for students, parents, and teachers. Recently, I watched a talk show host interview a 3rd grade student. The student stated that she had learned to lock herself out of Zoom classes. Three weeks passed before anyone realized it was an intentional act. When asked why she would lock herself out of the classes, she replied, “I was tired of zooming for school.”
