๐Ÿ’ป ๐Ÿ“ Dr. Montessori could never have foreseen the technological advances that children have ready access to these days or anticipated the need for them to develop digital literacy in addition to language and math skills.

Unity is defined as the state of being in agreement and working together as a team. Imagine a group of friends who each have different talents and skills. When everyone works together and helps each other, magic happens!

Unity is being connected to one another, caring for each other, and supporting each other. By combining each personโ€™s unique skills and ideas, we can solve problems faster and make things better.

How can you teach kids about unity?

Teach them to be kind to others: by sharing their toys, helping someone who needs it, and using friendly words. If someone is being treated unkindly or unfairly, speak up for them. When someone is sad or upset, listen and try to understand how they feel.

Make sure everyone is included in games or group activities. Kids will learn to work as a team by sharing ideas, taking turns, and supporting each other. Help them celebrate and appreciate the interests, cultures, and backgrounds that make every person unique.

Weโ€™re not just connected to other people, but also to nature and planet Earth. By teaching kids how to care for and protect nature, they learn to protect everything connected to it.

Unity means being a good friend and treating others the way you want to be treated. When we all show unity, we make the world a happier and more loving place for everyone!

Resilience is the ability to adapt to adversity, trauma, threats or sources of stress, and itโ€™s a critical component of positive mental well-being. Studies have shown that resilient kids are more empathetic, curious, adaptable and hopeful.

Resilience doesnโ€™t mean your child wonโ€™t experience difficulties or have to solve problems alone. It means they can handle whatever comes at them and bounce back from disappointments.

There are several ways you can help your kids learn to be resilient. Teach them basic steps for problem-solving: define the issue, identify the best outcome and ways to achieve it.

Try to avoid eliminating every possible risk while giving your child age-appropriate freedoms. Resist the urge to always rush to the rescue; be a sounding board and a guide while they work through a situation. Instead of asking โ€œwhyโ€ questions (โ€œWhy did you do that?โ€), ask โ€œhowโ€ questions (โ€œHow will you fix this?โ€).

Help them learn to handle defeats rather than focusing on constant success. Normalize setbacks, challenges and failures as part of the learning process โ€“ mastering any task takes practice. Donโ€™t just praise their accomplishments, acknowledge their efforts. If they exhibit negative thinking, counter with encouraging and positive ways of seeing things and focus on the future beyond the current situation.

Whether a child is changing classrooms or schools, is confronted by bullying, or struggles with a new subject, being able to adjust is an important life skill. Parents and teachers play a role in helping kids have the confidence to handle any circumstance.

How do you help your child learn to cope with challenges that come their way?
