Helpful tips

Helpful Tips

Regardless of what assignment I give, I know everybody is different – I don’t expect the kids to be the best at the assignment – just to do their best. Then, of course, give credit where it is due. Progress is the goal here, not perfection – just like it is in relationships.

Can’t think of an assignment? Have the kids do what I just had you do using their strongest intelligence. They’ll come up with something!

If you are too cool to do the social skills, they definitely are too cool to do them! Demonstrate the skills all the time! Show that even grownups do it.

Go online – Google, Youtube and Pinterest are your best friends.
