Episode 1: C.A.R.E.S. Series – What Are Give-N-Take Kids?
What are Give-N-Take Kids? What does it mean to “grow” Give-N-Take Kids? And how do we do it? In this episode we will answer these questions. And we will explore environments that allow kids to thrive by developing Give-N-Take attributes that follow them into adulthood and become their Power Traits for Life™!
Episode 2: C.A.R.E.S. Series – Celebrate Your Child or Student
Children see themselves as we see them, and that is what they are going to believe. If we mostly see and point out their faults, they will see themselves as faulty, with nothing to share. If we see and CELEBRATE their strengths and abilities, they will see themselves as strong and gifted with lots to share. In this episode we will talk about ways to celebrate your children or students for who they are, with all of their uniqueness, and the gifts they bring to the family and community.
Episode 3: C.A.R.E.S. Series – Accept Your Role as Your Child’s or Student’s Coach
We believe that our job as teachers and parents is to be Great Coaches – coaching young people to believe in themselves, to be confident in their own abilities and what they CAN do. This episode is all about how to bring out the stars in our children and students, and show them where they shine – one of the components for Growing Give-N-Take Kids and empowering them for life.
Episode 4: C.A.R.E.S. Series – Respond Rather Than React
When things happen that are outside your comfort zone, and you’re feeling a lot of pressure, what do you do? This episode is about reactivity and responsiveness, the difference between the two, what brings them out in you, and how they affect your life and those around you. Learning to be responsive is a Give-N-Take attribute that results in a more peaceful, relaxed, and fun family and work life.
Episode 5: C.A.R.E.S. Series – Expand Your View of What Motivates Your Child or Student
It’s hard to stop happy, satisfied people from trying to learn more about themselves and the world, or from feeling good about themselves when they’ve accomplished something. It’s not actually human nature to do as little as possible – that’s a sign that something is wrong. So what motivates young people? Rewards? Punishments? This episode is about how to provide an environment that stimulates motivation from the inside out – one more step toward Growing Give-N-Take Kids and giving them the gift of Power Traits for Life™.
