Our children are exposed to competitive situations from a very early age. More children than ever are participating in higher level competitive sports, both standardized testing and rigorous academic standards create additional competition in the classroom, and an increasing amount of children put insurmountable pressure on themselves to be perfect, which can be the catalyst for myriad emotional, physical, and social problems.
In this class we will combine group activities, role playing, and robust discussions as we dive deeper into “The Art of Being a Good Sport.” We’ll talk about winning vs losing, success vs failure, and progress vs perfection. We’ll unearth tools for coping with disappointment, failure, and loss. We’ll go over strategies for staying at the top of our academic, athletic, extracurricular, and interpersonal games. And, each day will include the creation of an art project that complements the day’s activities.
This is going to be an empowering, creative, and enlightening program for your sons and daughters. You may choose to send your child for individual days if you prefer (individual day registration appears here).
