Reaching out to a child is important. Gifting them with self esteem that they themselves provide with your help is priceless.
Valedictorian in high school from a class of 609 from Killeen Texas.
Learning and teaching are two sides of the same coin. Both happen simultaneously.
Create a balance between giving yourself challenges and giving yourself rewards.
Choosing between different alternatives is only useful when the decider is a joint effort between oneself and one's parents.
Eventually you will become confident in making your own decisions.
Seeing something to the end is one of the most decisive attitudes to hold when seeing the goal.
Learning Style I like:
a blending of the traditional and the radical, synesthesia (multi sensory moments), gardens, toy shops,stamps, classical music
holistic education, development of the whole person
