A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children

A Strategy For Promoting Resilience In Children | Whispering | Scoop.it

Do you foster an anxious mindset or a resilient mindset in your children or students? 

 

Children need to understand our minds are running us and we must know our minds really well if we want to be happy, resilient and successful.


Here are some do’s and don’ts to help teach children to identify the exact nature of their thoughts, unpack and challenge those thoughts and stories and change how they feel.

Psychology for Marketers: 9 Revealing Principles of Human Behavior

Psychology for Marketers: 9 Revealing Principles of Human Behavior | Whispering | Scoop.it
Brush up on these 9 psychology principles to help improve the effectiveness of your marketing.


Digest...

 

1)      Reciprocity: Give away something -- for free -- to help build community or customer loyalty.

2)      Commitments: Though you should never stop trying to delight your customers (per principle #1), it’s important to keep in mind that the longer the commitment they make to you, the harder it could be for them to churn.

3)      Authority: Amp up your authority in your content by prominently featuring authors’ information alongside their blog posts, ebooks, whitepapers, or videos.

4)      Social Proof: One easy way to make the most of social proof is on your blog -- if you're not already, use social sharing and follow buttons that display the number of followers your accounts have or the number of shares a piece of content has.

5)      Liking: You just want people to feel positively affiliated with your brand. So however you make that happen, it's worth a try.

6)      Scarcity 

7)      Recency Illusion: This is important to keep in mind when you’re designing marketing campaigns -- you should be aiming to develop robust, integrated campaigns, not just a one-and-done piece of content.

8)      Verbatim Effect: you should try to pack as much relevant and descriptive information into your headline as you can.

9)      Clustering: Do the legwork for your audience: group similar topics in your writing together -- either under numbered bullet points or with different header sizes.

State legislatures around the country are determined not to let gridlock in Washington, DC block the expansion of early child care and education opportunities for those students who may need a little help getting started on their bright futures.

 

President Obama has proposed a $75 billion universal pre-K plan, which includes funding to ensure preschool for all students and boost the quality of childcare nationwide. However, lawmakers on Capitol Hill, mired down in their respective political corners, have failed to act on the President’s plan.

 

But an upcoming study from the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) appears to indicate that states are moving forward with their own efforts to improve early care and education. According to NCSL, lawmakers in 49 different states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico have introduced more than 650 bills related to early care and education, and about 150 of these bills have become law in 35 states and Puerto Rico.

 

“Students need to have a good beginning to have a good ending,” said Sigrid Grace, a veteran teacher with more than 30-years of classroom teaching experience. “And as more is required of children to have a quality education, we need to make sure students are having good educational experiences at a young age.”

3 Foundations for Helping Kids Express Anger Effectively

3 Foundations for Helping Kids Express Anger Effectively | Whispering | Scoop.it

Have you ever been in a situation where you were so overwhelmed with feelings of anger that you were at a loss for words? You had the presence of mind to know all of the things that you shouldn't say, but weren't quite sure how to express your true feelings without damaging your relationship. Adults often struggle with effectively communicating their angry feelings. For children, this challenge is doubly difficult; kids don't want to get in trouble for expressing themselves aggressively, but they often lack the skills for communicating assertively.

 

Parents can help their kids develop specific skills for assertive anger expression, beginning with these three primers:
