LHMS Newsletter

March 8, 2016

We are thrilled to be getting outside more, the children have caught "Spring Fever". It came "in like a lion, out like a lamb".

We celebrated Dr. Seuss' birthday. The children are enjoying all the Dr. Seuss books in the library. "A person's a person, no matter how small." - Dr. Seuss.

Creating Calm Tip #1: Full Attention

Give your full attention to each member of the family sometime each day (including your spouse and yourself).

Go for a walk, following your child's pace and interests.

As I sat drafting this newsletter, I found myself ignoring my daughter, Eva as she tried to share her day at school with me. I stopped and gave her my undivided attention for only 5 minutes. Then went outside for a few minutes to kick a soccer ball around with my other daughter, Mia. What a huge difference that made in our evening routine - drama free.

Peace Corner: Love Light Explained

The children are blossoming into citizens of the world. We have talked about our bright “Love Lights” that lives within all of us.

Every human being has a light within himself or herself that fills our heart with love. This love is called our "Love Light". When we are especially excited or happy or proud, our love lights shine brightly. We told the children that sometimes we can see their love light shining out from their eyes when they feel happy.

When we feel sad or hurt our love light grows dim. This can happen when people say unkind things to one another. The good news is that light is still in our hearts and we can see our love lights still shining, just not as brightly.

The Love Light Necklace will serve as a reminder of how important it is to treat one another with kindness so we don't make someone's Love Light dim and that we try to live each day in ways that brighten the lights of those around us.
