I had an interesting discussion with my students today about complaining and if there is a purpose to the act. I asked them to conceive affable solutions rather than complain about definite outcomes, and was frightened by their overall inability to see that a change is not only inevitable but also necessary and that change doesn’t have to be bad.
They are young, amazing people in grades 4, 5 and 6 and I guess I thought that I would be pleasantly engaged in a hopeful activity with them. Alas, I was not.
I invite you to assist me with some activities that might help me to help them look for the good first in all of the changes that befall them so that I might better prepare them as well as prepare the world for these wonderful kidlets that will soon be our leaders…
