Expressing concerns, conflicts, and feelings is critical to a child's emotional and behavioural development. This book is divided into four sections describing proven techniques that help children open up about their feelings. This book was designed on a simple premise: that children greatly benefit from having meaningful conversations with adults. Most of us have had the experience of this kind of conversation with an older person. This kind of interaction, 'Good Talks,' nurtures the relationship between children and adults. Children can learn to think positively about themselves and their world by listening to positive statements from the adults they care about. Children also need to be heard, and they need to know that their opinion counts. Good Talks give them an opportunity to do both. When adults take the time to talk and listen to children regarding their thoughts and feelings, children learn values and the importance of good behaviour. Talking about feelings and concerns is the best way to raise a child's "emotional intelligence." Hundreds of studies have made it clear that children with a high EQ have the best chance of developing friends and being successful in school and later in work. Using the many fun activities in this book, you can have Good Talks with children any time and anywhere. The book includes: 150 Conversation Cards Reproducible writing activities Talking rituals to help make emotional communication a daily habit. The activities are designed for use by counsellors, teachers, or parents. This book is part of The Discipline Solution, a system of positive discipline which emphasises teaching children to be good rather than punishing them for being bad.
