6 days ago
Preparing and equipping children with a toolbox of skills at a young age is so crucial to their success as they grow into adolescence and adulthood. It’s important that educators and parents help children understand how to decipher their emotions along with learning academic skills. In this episode, we’re joined by Sarah Shawesh. Sarah is a Program and Family Development Specialist, Clever Endeavors Early Care & Education, Inc. a Child and Adolescent Studies Faculty Member at California State University, Fullerton, and Program Coordinator, Orange County Association for the Education of Young Children (OCAEYC). Full show transcript here. What We Discuss in This Episode: The importance of emphasizing children’s strengths and encouraging them to be their true selves Looking at education as a whole and changing it on a holistic level is more effective than trying to change it one student at a time Is “school” becoming a dirty word? What can we do about it? As educators, it’s more important to provide children up to 5 years old with a toolbox of skills that they can take with them as they grow instead of just being someone who teaches information It might seem overwhelming but we need a huge shift in the way educators teach young children in school How can teachers prepare notes that are objective and which can be passed on to the following year’s educators We should be having conversations with children even younger than 3 years old about regulation, emotions, controlling feelings, etc. Even if a child is described as “non-verbal,” that doesn’t mean that they don’t communicate at all Resources: Help Me Grow Connection Café Contact Information: Sarah Shawesh - LinkedIn Thank you for listening!
