Raising Resilient Children: A Webinar for Early Childhood Educators
520 8th Avenue
New York, NY 10018
Webinar with Jean Schreiber
Do you wonder:
How to support your students’ self esteem?
How children gain resiliency?
How to foster self suffieciency?
How to encourage risk taking?
As Jews, resiliency has been the cornerstone that has led to our surviving and thriving. Yet today, many of our children and teens are exhibiting an alarming increase in anxiety, depression and lack of coping skills. There are many factors that contribute to this, many of which begin in early childhood. It is our responsibility as Jewish early childhood educators to deepen our understanding of how young children become resilient, and to identify and strengthen strategies, and the Jewish experiences that help build confidence, grit, and healthy self-esteem.
Join us for this webinar with early childhood educational consultant Jean Schreiber to explore ways that you, as an early childhood educator, can support young children in their journey towards resiliency and healthy self-esteem. Learn classroom techniques to give children power (just the right amount), protection (but not overprotection), predictability (but not rigidity), and praise for effort and process (rather than product). The session will also address supportive ways to partner with parents who are struggling at home with challenging behaviors.
