Which topics are covered in the training?

COMMUNICATION

We cover topics including active listening, perspective taking, word choices, body language, negotiation styles that children usually have to wait until college to learn.

COOPERATION

Lessons in this category help your child in conflict resolution and become a leader from an early age. Developing the cooperation strength also help children make, keep friends friends, and start preparing for leadership roles.

EMPATHY

Empathy is foundational to conflict resolution, leadership and emotional wellbeing. It doesn’t just help people get along, but also enhances happiness and reduce stress. Perspective taking is frequently practiced throughout all programs, and aides problem solving greatly.

RESILIENCE

Growing numbers of expert say resilience is the #1 key to success. We don’t just “lecture” about resilience. In our programs, children learn by doing–overcoming, problem-solving tough situations like bullying, peer pressure, unexpected changes, test anxiety, rejection, etc.

DISCIPLINE

Self-disciplined children control their impulses, considering possible consequences and goals before they act. Our programs purposely challenge children in areas they most need work. Children will face positive role models as well as learn to resist temptations.

CONFIDENCE

The more confident children are, the more likely they are to try new things, stand firm against peer pressure, feel proud of who they are, and really give their best shot at everything they do. Components of growth mindset like positive thinking are taught, practiced and reinforced.
