Psychology of Caring (6 weeks)

What would you do?

 

Your Mom and Dad tell you that your godmother has cancer and is in the hospital for treatment and an operation. 

A friend confides in you tearfully that her parents are talking about a divorce. 

Your classmate sends you a message that you are invited to his grandfather's memorial service. 

 

What do you do?  What do you say?

 

This is a class about sharpening your skills as a caring person and learning specific ways to communicate with and give help to a friend or relative going through a crisis.  One of those skills is knowing your own limitations and when a troubled person needs adult help and maybe a professional expert.  But most of the skills are practical and helpful for enriching your relationships with the friends and relatives you care about. 

 

Every Penny Counts (5 weeks)

We focus so much on developing our children- emotionally, socially, spiritually, and intellectually. And now the next level of development- financial responsibility. WIth Ms Emilie, students will learn about budgeting, credit cards, credit scores, interest rates, the stock market, investing, loans, and more. They will have the opportunity to create a mock stock portfolio and “play” the stock market and create their own personal life financial plan. After all, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. It is not too early for students to become financially wise; this class pays big dividends, and it’s lots of fun too!

 

The Creative Genius in You (5 weeks)

You have the recipe for greatness in your soul. Whether it’s expressed with water paints or widgets, you are creative. Feeding your creative side reaps rich long-term rewards—studies show that it correlates with greater professional success later in life, whether or not you pursue a field that is typically thought of as “creative”. Think about Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and Einstein- all highly creative people who found success in the sciences. Those with higher creativity skills publish more books, create more artwork, execute more successful ad campaigns, file more patents, and give more lectures. In fact, the correlation between childhood creativity and adult accomplishment is three times as strong as that between childhood IQ and adult accomplishment. 

 

However, like a flame, creativity needs to be fanned, fed, and encouraged. In our world today, creativity is easily squashed; it must be handled with care, like a delicate flower. So, how can you strengthen your creative side? Some answers may surprise you. For example, a solid sleeping routine is necessary (yes, we will encourage your child to go to bed on time!), along with uninterrupted alone time, an element of artistic collaboration, and other powerful habits. Join us as we study the most creative minds of all time, study their habits, develop our own healthy habits, and discuss the science of creativity. Set yourself apart in the world; nourish your creative side and become a creative genius.
