Developing Children in Christ’s Image
Are your children/students anxious, aggressive or shut down? Create a culture of self-care and problem-solving that allows leaders and children to thrive. In this lively, interactive session, participants are introduced to classroom management and creating an emotionally safe environment. Learn practical strategies such as lowering one’s own stress, calming someone down and the Make-it-Right Formula (forgiveness and reconciliation). Teach children these skills so they can manage their own relationships, feel connected and shine their light in the world.
