September School Days

What is it about slipping on a brand new pair of shoes or a fancy new dress?  Now compare that feeling to putting on your favorite pair of jeans or tennie-runners?  The first day of school is a mix of both as we integrate the excitement of the new with the comforts of the old.  This year is a perfect balance.  To those of you who are new to KIDSPACE . . . welcome!  To those of you who are our long-time cherished families . . . thank you for sharing another year with us.  

Problem Solving with Children

PROBLEM SOLVING . . . it sounds like math homework.  In this instance, it’s a lot more important than finding a solution to an addition equation.  We’re discussing techniques to bring a solution to an issue that is running interference between two or more people.  More specifically, problem solving is a simple strategy children can learn and use to find solutions to the daily problems they encounter as they go about their business of being children while growing into responsible, happy adults.  When children  implement problem solving skills with the peers and adults in their lives they are equipping themselves  with techniques which will benefit them throughout every dimension of their present and future lives.  It is our responsibility, as adults, to teach and model problem solving skills to children.  It is definitely an investment in time, but the ROI (return on investment) is off the charts.  Start investing now!
