DONNA BRYANT GOERTZ will present:
Relationships in the Classroom: You, Me and Us
Whether with adults or other children, our child needs the most and best support for the natural and independent development of relationships at school. These habits of relating last a lifetime and affect future life at home and out in the world. Each year, at each age, our children struggle to learn the skills for healthy friendships. How can we empower them to recognize and bring out the best in themselves and others while keeping everyone safe? How can we ensure a more secure, productive, and happy community for our children by respecting the value of conflict?
