A CHILD WITH A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IS GUARANTEED A LIFE OF HAPPINESS AND SUCCESS.
We all play a role in molding the lives of the children we come in contact with.
Attitude is a learned way of thinking. Repetitive use of specific thoughts establishes the characteristics of a child’s mindset which is a myriad of self chosen thought patterns. These impact the quality of the rest of a child’s life.
Bad attitude – lousy life… good attitude – happy life.
Scientists tell us that there is a’scanner’ embedded in the brain mechanism which records the input from a child’s life experiences in the form of decipherable thought patterns. During the developmental stage, up to age 8, brain cells make the most connections. Amongst other functions, these cells are building an attitude.
Facts to bear in mind:
Childhood is when the foundation for life is set.
Physical movement makes for an active brain.
Stress disables learning as the destructive hormone, Cortisol, is produced during trauma.
Music boosts learning.
Caring relationships help children feel good about themselves and this boosts self image.
EQ versus IQ
Today the focus has shifted from IQ to EQ.
History shows that many people with great IQ’s have led miserable lives,
History shows that many people with great EQ’s have soared above expectation.
It is EI that governs the quality of life.
Children learn primarily from EXAMPLE.
OUR THOUGHTS OUR EXAMPLE THEIR LIVES!
Give them the most valuable gift by teaching them how to become positive thinkers.
