We posted this article on our social media. And with the power of synchronicity, this is what I have been meditating on for the last week – #resilience. I think that with eh amount of #stress I keep hearing kids are having at such a young age, this may be one that they need to put in practice, along with their parents.
How important is resilience? It could have long-term health implications. A study published in the February 1, 2016, issue of Heart found that young men with low-stress resilience scores were 40% more likely to develop high blood pressure later in life. Read more here!
When I saw the preview for this movie, I thought it was a great way to introduce and shed some light on how little humans go through some of the same things we do as adults. Some facing things like depression. However, as I watched the trailer, I know that this is a movie that the parent and child want to see together. It can aide in a parent not ignoring the emotions of the his/her child; but also let the child see that these are not odd or not “normal” and that adults deal with it as well. This is edutainment at its’ best – a teachable moment! Enjoy it! #40lifeafterbirth
I became an advocate for children when I was 19 years old and have bounced in and out of education throughout my professional years. So…this didn’t just happen upon having my son. But the state of education for children has had such a down turn that it makes me frustrated and sad. So when a friend sent this to me – it was synchronicity for a recent project I created (I’ll reveal it soon).
Watch as this young boy speaks truth.
PS – Thanks to Soul Pancake for this campaign!
It never fails that when children learn to put their shoes on their feet, they put them on the opposite or wrong foot! So my son is no exception. The funny thing is he puts them on when he is ready to go to sleep. Is there scientific studies of this???
