How do you practice gratitude in your everyday life? How well do think your children understand the concept of giving thanks?
With Thanksgiving approaching, it's the perfect time of year to reflect on the ways we give thanks for our blessings and how we express gratitude. And for parents, it's a time when we can ask ourselves if we've been successful in instilling a sense of gratitude in our children.
For kids to grow up emotionally-healthy, they need to be able to appreciate and express gratitude in their day-to-day life. You might worry that you haven't done enough to teach your kids to give thanks for everything they have but don't worry. It's never too late to get started! Here are a few ideas on how to make gratitude part of your family values.
Having a new teacher in class can be an awesome experience for any student, and especially a dance student! Because dance is passed down from generation to generation and learned from person to person, every teacher’s perspective brings something special to the classroom. Whether it’s the way they introduce a concept or how they explain a correction, a new teacher’s unique viewpoint can offer unexpected “lightbulb moments” in a child’s learning experience.
Just like classes at school, our dance classes may have new teachers in place at the beginning of the season, at the new semester, or if a teacher requires a substitute during the year. Here at Pegasus Studios, we understand that having a new dance teacher can be fun for some students and nerve-wracking for others.
