Connection is Key
In thinking about the strong connections you have with the children in your care, what does it mean to make a “connection” with each other? In our hearts and minds we are likely to feel connected to those we spend our days with, but routinely, we may find ourselves spending more time on Correcting and Directing, leaving little time for Connecting.
Our relationships with children are in and of themselves a key teacher in the classroom. This presentation explored some of the factors in recognizing children’s relational needs. In this thought-provoking session with Dr. Jean Clinton, we also explored relationships as the “nutrition” of the brain; how can we make sure our kids are “well-fed”?
