“Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”
Self-reflection is a life long journey and not something we typically think of as ‘kids work’. But practicing self-reflection can be an important part of children understanding themselves and their world. It is a great skill to give our children and it is best learned in the day to day events of life. Self-reflection allows children to get a picture of their thoughts and feelings. When they are more aware of their own thoughts and feelings they can . . .
*learn how to handle strong emotions
*find new ways to approach a problem
*adjust when things don’t go according to plan
Here are 3 ways you can encourage self-reflection in your children.
1) Assist them in an attitude of discovery
• ask them questions
• when they ask a question, ask what they think before answering
• share your discoveries with them
2) Link current experience to past learning
• remember when you were so sad about . . . , but then you had a good time. . .”
3) Acknowledge success
• notice when they take time to think things through
• point out when things went well because they used reflection
