Hello, New Year! Goodbye '13
By Michele Hampton
It is hard to believe that 2013 is coming to an end as the holiday approaches. Our Winter Program is December 10th at 6:30 pm and the Christmas Parade is December 6th. I am sure you won't want to miss these events. These joyous activities will help set the tone for a cheerful holiday. Everyone needs cheer and happiness in their lives.
January is a traditional time of the year for setting goals. I hope you have accomplished this year's goals, and you are thinking about your academic and personal goals for next year. Goals give us direction. They help us figure out where we are going and how we get there. When we write down our goals, we are making a road map into the future. As the staff and I monitor progress for KES this year, we are constantly making revisions to help us meet our goals for this school year.
Let's have a fabulous '14 just as '13 has been! Have a safe holiday! On December 20th, I will say to all of you, "See you next year!"
Children Who Feel Entitled
By: Michele Hampton
Many times parents ask me how to deal with their child's anger or temper tantrums. I wish I had all of the answers, but I have seen responses to temper tantrums that really do work. Children do have some entitlements such as adequate food and shelter, warmth, mental and emotional health, intellectual challenges, education, fun, play, reasonable choices, creative endeavors, emotional and physical protection, love, sufficient clothing, fair treatment, and good relationships. I am sure that parents would agree that children are not entitled to have all their wants indulged unconditionally. This should be appropriate to their age and maturity. Children don't usually fare well in the short or long term if all their wishes are magically granted.
So when a child makes a request for something that she want, parents have four options:
*Say "yes." Do so if you deem the activity or object to be appropriate and beyond the child's ability to acquire on his/her own.
*Tell him/her that you will not provide whatever it is that he's wanting, but that he can find a way on his own to acquire it.
*Teach him how to acquire it. Help the child save allowances by setting up a savings account at the bank. He/she can also do extra household chores.
*Say "no." Explain why it's inappropriate. Or tell him/her that you will help him acquire it when he/she is older.
Stay with her/him if she/he goes into a tirade. To deny a child something he/she feels entitled is painful, but in the long run the child learns to wait for gratification and to make plans to reach a goal.
Our School Goals for 2013 -2014
- Sustain a positive partnership with parents, community, and staff in order to increase student achievement and attendance.
- Continue to build collaboration among all staff members and district resources to meet the needs of all students.
- Collect and display data to promote, measure, and ensure academic growth over time for all students.
- Recognize and reward character and good citizenship to enhance student leadership in the
community. Sudlersville Elementary School
