Small Steps toward Improvement
For parents and teachers:
Believe in your children’s ability to change and manage their behavior in appropriate ways.
Discover what your child truly enjoys and join her in doing these activities.
Identify the positives.
Be inquisitive: ask children if the problem/consequence works for them?
Ask what they could do differently next time.
While we are lead to believe that happiness is external and found outside ourselves,
what is going to happen if we wait for everyone else to make magic happen?
You are the reason I do this work & I am here.
You are born with natural empathy.
To children who are our teachers~ What do you think the world needs more of?
Regard yourself as a guide to bring out the sweetness of your child.
Drama Therapy shows you how:
We can create the kind of world we want.
We can create and foster a peaceful place we can turn to and feel connected to, and go back to.
You can find tools to help you create this inner environment before you go to work or school.
