There have been times during my kids’ school years that I’ve felt I had to defend my priority of wanting them to learn things like kindness, empathy, perseverance, coping skills, mindfulness and compassion before making sure they grasped “everything else” in their educational journey.
And listen — it’s not because I believe the “everything else” knowledge doesn’t matter –I KNOW it does — but in the world we live in today, I want to make sure when they are out there using “everything else” that the platform on which they stand is a strong one.
To me, learning things like
▪️mindfulness to help focus in a chaotic world
▪️empathy to help understand and respect the people around them
▪️kindness when it comes to approaching others
▪️coping skills when life’s circumstances can get overwhelming
▪️entrepreneurial skills to show them the dedication and perseverance it takes to achieve their definition of success
… are all things that I think should be a non-negotiable part of our children’s curriculum.
