Things Highly Influential People Always do to convince others - http://sco.lt/6bGbQH
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 14, 2:30 PM
I am reading Paul Ricoeur and his phenomenology promotes the idea of imagining as essential to communicating and interpreting. Kaufmann proposed four ways to help children imagine: solitary reflection time, being able to stop something that is not being enjoyed, diverse experiences, and think of each person as exceptional. This applies to adults, as well. If children see adults doing these things, maybe it would be easier for them to imagine themselves doing them, as well.
Scott Olson's curator insight, July 17, 12:31 PM
One thing I try to impart to kids.  Everyone has a strength. Someone may be booksmart, an athlete etc.  It does not make one person better than the other because of their strength.
