Kids These Days - Leadership, Innovation & Divergent Teaching - 1 views

  •  
    "I truly believe that part of being an advocate for kids is believing that all of them, no matter what, possess redeeming qualities. I know that I see kids do absolutely amazing things with talent and grit and an awareness of other people that I don't remember myself or my classmates having when I was their age. On the flip side, I know we have students who are so angry and struggling and do things that are unkind and frankly, sometimes violent. But, instead of asking why the students are so poorly behaved, I think the better question is what support did we miss as parents/educators/society and how can we bring out the goodness? My point being…no matter the child, if we don't believe that there is a place inside of them that has the potential for greatness then that is more about our shortcomings than it is about them.

How To Talk With Kids About Terrible Things : NPR Ed : NPR - 3 views

  •  
    "For the more than 3,000 students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Wednesday's mass shooting was terrifying and life-changing. But what of the tens of millions of other children, in schools across the country, who have since heard about what happened and now struggle with their own feelings of fear, confusion and uncertainty?

    For their parents and teachers, we've put together a quick primer with help from the National Association of School Psychologists and Melissa Reeves, a former NASP president and co-author of its PREPaRE School Crisis Prevention and Intervention curriculum."

Get Free Kids' Coloring Pages Using Google Images - 2 views

  •  
    "Psssst. Want to make your kid think you're a sorcerer? I've got a trick.

    First, you will need a magical machine called a printer. Then when the child is near your computer, ask, "Hey, what would you like to color right now? It can be anything. Your favorite character? Spain during the Cold War? A hot dog?" Your kid might respond with skepticism, but tell him to trust you. Then do a Google image search of his selection, and under Tools, click "Type," and select "Line drawing." Choose a high-resolution image, print it out, and hand it to your child with some crayons."

What The Screen Time Experts Do With Their Own Kids : NPR Ed : NPR - 2 views

  •  
    "Parents today struggle to set screen time guidelines.

    One big reason is a lack of role models. Grandma doesn't have any tried-and-true sayings about iPad time. This stuff is just too new.

    But many experts on kids and media are also parents themselves. So when I was interviewing dozens of them for my book The Art of Screen Time, I asked them how they made screen time rules at home.

    None of them held themselves up as paragons, but it was interesting to see how the priorities they focused on in their own research corresponded with the priorities they set at home."

Panicked about Kids' Addiction to Tech? - NewCo Shift - 1 views

  • children learn values and norms by watching their parents and other caregivers.
  • Once you begin saying out loud every time you look at technology, you also realize how much you’re looking at technology. And what you’re normalizing for your kids.
  • Teenagers loathe hypocrisy. It’s the biggest thing that I’ve seen to undermine trust between a parent and a child.
