New Year, New You: Open-Mindedness

The New Year automatically lends itself đồ sộ trying new things. For some, it is the practice of eliminating elements that may improve their health, lượt thích trying a cleanse. For others, it is adding in practices that could help them decrease their stress levels, lượt thích joining a yoga studio. Whether we are aiming for Dry January or joining a Meetup Group, the practice of the New Year and its many resolutions is about being open-minded đồ sộ things that could improve your life. This also implies being open minded towards those who are presenting us with their lofty goals for 2020. 

Here at ISDenver, we are using this month đồ sộ open our minds đồ sộ new ideas and new people. This may be as obvious as introducing yourself đồ sộ someone who appears đồ sộ be completely different phàn nàn you in appearance, or more subjective, lượt thích figuring out how đồ sộ have a meaningful argument with someone expressing the completely opposite point of view. Either way, we are asking our learners đồ sộ try and be open. 

In order đồ sộ even begin the process of opening one’s mind đồ sộ change, we first have đồ sộ acknowledge that it is okay đồ sộ have some bias, it is okay đồ sộ be apprehensive, and it is okay đồ sộ not understand why you think the way you bởi. Our school is fortunate in many ways, for our learners have been introduced đồ sộ different cultures, languages, and ethnicities from a young age. They have traveled the state, country, and some have traveled the world at this point, learning about things that are different phàn nàn what they see at trang chủ everyday. 

As we pride ourselves on being an inclusive and open-minded school, there is always room đồ sộ grow, and that is what we are teaching your children this month. So, I leave you with ideas đồ sộ explore as a family during this month and throughout the year. This topic is one for conversation, experiences, and healthy debates, which are all things every family can bởi together đồ sộ learn how đồ sộ be an open minded person. 

For Younger Learners: 

  • Your children relate ví easily đồ sộ characters in books and movies. Pick a story that may be out of your child’s realm of expertise. Elmer books by David McKee, A Day in The Life of Marlon Bundo, I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato, Red, A Crayon’s Story or My Dad Does Yoga for our youngest children. For older primary students, chapter books lượt thích Wonder, My Weirder School series, or the Sophie Washington series. Movies lượt thích The Descendents can also spark discussion on whether evil creates evil or giving people second chances. 
  • Set family goals. Include places đồ sộ visit, new activities đồ sộ try, bucket list items, or family traditions đồ sộ incorporate. Make sure đồ sộ post this in a visible place and revisit often during family dinners.
  • Try a restaurant with unique food. Maybe it is an Ethiopian restaurant where they can eat with their hands, maybe you go for ice cream and try the craziest flavor listed. Food is a great way đồ sộ bond over new experiences.

For Older Learners: 

  • Create family book club reading a book out of your comfort zone: Game Changer, Focused, The Way I Used To Be, Will Grayson Will Grayson, or The Hate You Give.
  • Hold a mock debate. It is a great lesson for older learners đồ sộ be able đồ sộ argue their point of view and respectfully disagree with another. Role play with them debating as the adult and you as the child. This also helps them disassociate the argument from the person.
  • Family goals can still be relevant at this age. Let your child have a bigger say in where the family trip is, mix activity goals, or learning đồ sộ cook new recipes. Again, the more times you revisit these goals the more likely you are đồ sộ accomplish them.
