Helping Students Find Their Voice
This story is meant to support the cultivation of assertiveness in children via play. Especially for children who may need accommodations at school, they can learn to feel safe asserting their needs by making it fun.
Last week at school, my five-year-old daughter yelled at her friend, “BE QUIET. YOU’RE TOO LOUD!”
My daughter was the one yelling. Does this ever happen in your home? Someone screaming for quiet? Ironic, isn’t it? Her teacher, who told me about it at the end of the day, was baffled.
