In Support of Children and Families
In preparation for this assignment:
Recall an event from your childhood involving a challenge in which someone â€œstood upâ€ for you or did not, and the effects of that support or lack of support.
My parents divorced when I was 12 years old, I was the oldest of five children, and it still affects me today. At that time being caught in the middle, try to understand, and when the divorce is the talk of the town, people making joke about it â€¦ The only support it was from my mother but she was the most strong women I knew.
Choose three that you would like to explore more deeply
- Do I treat staff respectfully, recognizing and appreciating their unique cultural style and belief systems? Do I ask about openly talk about and appreciate the differences between us? Do I model open and respectful listening?
- Do I invite Children to try new ways of interacting with people and materials, while also supporting their preferred learning styles?
- What images comes to mind when you think about social activist? Draw a picture of some. Where do you think your images come from: direct experience? Television or Newspaper?
Turn each into an action statement that demonstrates the ways in which a person might â€œstand upâ€ for children and/or families.
