Emotional Intelligence – Coming Soon


When schools start to re open their doors to more pupils it is inevitable that the greatest challenge will not be centred around academic progress. Sure, catching children up on their Maths work, reading levels etc are important but the largest obstacle to overcome will be centred around how children are able to manage in this new normal. How will they feel being back in 'the outside'. How will they cope with socialising, communicating, focusing in a structured environment. What about coping with bereavement, or being friends with children who have suffered. How will children be able to continue to develop and operate in a 'new normal.'

17 ways to teach mindfulness to children


What exactly is mindfulness, and why is it relevant for children? Mindfulness enables you to concentrate on the moment, in body, mind, and environment. Through its beginnings in Buddhism, it has developed to help to increase self-awareness, to be in control of your thoughts and negative feelings, to feel calmer, and to be kinder and more at peace with yourself. There are lots of ways of achieving this, and it has numerous benefits for any age group. Getting young minds into the habit of thinking this way will help them to deal with stressful situations, both now and later, and will enable them to make judgements and decisions with confidence. It will aid their concentration and encourage calmness, too - but how do you teach mindfulness to children?

The Mindfulness Raisin Exercise

However, we are only now beginning to talk about ways in which children can look after their emotional wellbeing in the same way. The fact that that is changing can only be a good thing.
