Connected & Respected/Mindfulness
During our biweekly room parent meeting, we got to see it in action with two of our kids. They both wanted the same item and it was quite a disagreement. Ms. Vanessa suggested that they try the ABCD solution, so they brainstormed ideas about how to make it work for both of them, they agreed upon a solution and then they did it. All by themselves!
