Encouraging Autonomy

The road of parenthood is bitter sweet. It begins with a totally helpless little human being, and over the years we pour our energy into meeting the needs of our growing child/children. Everything we do is with the goal in mind that someday they will have the inner strength and confidence to successfully leave us.
Last Friday, in the Parent Talk at ISQ we discussed ways to encourage our children to strengthen and become competent individuals.

• Let children make choices
• Show respect for a child’s struggle
• Don’t ask too many questions
• Don’t rush to answer questions
• Encourage children to use resources outside of the home
• Don’t take away hope by protecting them from disappointment

If you would like a full copy of the session notes, in English, Chinese, or Korean, please contact Melanie.Harsch@isqchina.com or Carol.Franck@isqchina.com

There will be a final Parent Talk in April. Watch for the topic and the date.

Health Fair 2019

The Annual Elementary Health Fair on Friday, February 22 was a fun filled event that focused our students on healthy living themes. One station had students making creative creatures out of vegetables, and then munching on them afterward. Another station used an app called Dining Decisions to help our students understand healthy serving sizes. Students could select their own plate and the app would calculate what is too much, too little, or imbalanced. Elsewhere, whether learning about resolving conflicts, or experimenting with stretching bands for new stretching exercises, or hearing that getting enough sleep gives more energy, our students understood once again that ISQ values health. Ask your child about their experience; they were an enthusiastic bunch of learners. Way to go kids!
