SELF EMPOWERMENT for Children
- Imagine empowering your child with self-help techniques to recognize internal feelings, release inner tension, and relax. Even more, imagine your child learning how to focus, ground and center energy for both social and educational learning to happen at its best. Then see the look of empowerment in gaining peace of mind and self-control over any anxiety provoking situations. This is possible through the use of the latest self-help techniques based on brain based research.
"Taking the High Road" uses these techniques that provide the missing link to a child's self-esteem, resiliency and future success for:
- reducing stress
- empowering self
- feeling accepted and fitting in
- securing friends
- saying and doing what is appropriate,
- feeling confident
- advocating for self
- building resiliency
- increasing independence
- setting goals
- predicting outcomes
- feeling content
- and more…
Studies show that as our children continue to sharpen their skills of reading, writing, and math, more parents and educators are realizing that competent social and self-help skills (including stress reduction) are of equal importance in today's world. In fact, these skills may be the "missing link" to a child's self-esteem, resiliency and future success. Further, new data on stress in our children cite over 10% of our children ages 3-17 have diagnosed anxiety and over 4% have diagnosed depression.
With ever-increasing expectations, demands, challenges, and unfortunately, violence in our schools, it is critical that children learn how to communicate and solve problems with one another in a non-violent way. While most would agree, few children receive specific training in these social and self-help skills.
It is hoped that many children will develop these skills naturally as part of "just growing up" through imitation and trial & error. Yet according to statistics, about 25% of students without learning challenges and over 75% of students with learning challenges will require some type of social and self-help skill education to make learning and adjustment both in and out of school more achievable.
Be the parent who gives your child the edge to “be who they seem to be… seem to be who they truly are” in taking the high road.
