Weekly Message from the Founder of ALL THINGS EQ (Danna Evans):
The motto this week has been:
I am kind to the people I am with right now.
Friendships are a rewarding part of life. However, sometimes, it can be easy to expect too much from our friendships, especially in elementary school. Declarative statements such as, "They are my very best friends" can prevent other friendship opportunities from developing.
In school, teachers often have students work in pairs, and it's all too common to have students express disappointment in their pairings when they aren't with their "preferred" friends. Feelings can get hurt when this disappointment is visible via a sigh or a longing look to their best friend.
Naturally, we don't want our child to be the cause of another person's hurt feelings any more than we want their own feelings to get hurt. This is why this week is all about being kind to the people we are with right now!
The habit builder for this week is to encourage your child to be curious about the people around them by asking, "Did you learn anything new about people this week?" Or "Did anyone do something you admired?"
These questions help our students keep an open mind about the people around them because people are often much more than our first impressions suggest.
"Never lose an opportunity to see the good in someone."
When our children seek to see the goodness in others, others cannot help but see it in them!
