As we build positive relationships and young people of character and citizenship, the diversity of religion, race, gender, and culture from person to person is important to understand and embrace. This session will examine three areas: 1. What can we do to build self-confidence in young people? We will examine the three-legged stool of self-confidence, understand the difference between praise and encouragement, the difference between a fixed and growth mindset, and look at practical ways to develop a positive view of self. 2. Young people are more likely to grow up successfully when they experience developmental relationships with important people in their lives. How do we build effective developmental relationships? 3. A group could be formed of preschoolers, colleagues, a family. What are the characteristics of an effective group? What are the ways to develop a “group” effectively?
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
