This week our focus is on is the "Power of Attention" which states: "What I focus on I get more of." With that in mind, our "Conscious Commitment" is: "When I am upset, I will take a deep breath and switch my focus from what I DON'T want to what I DO want children to do. I will tell children what I want them to do and why. My 'why' will be related to safety." (Read more on pg. 123 of Conscious Discipline: Building Resilient Classrooms book.)

Abilene Head Start has been learning all about families. This Head Start Kiddo had fun making her family picture with her Mom and Family Consultant!
Conscious Commitment of the Week: "I am willing to use my assertive voice and tone when giving directions to children this week.” Assertiveness is clear communication that focuses children's attention on what we want them to do. Clear communication is essential for children to meet our expectations and for setting limits respectfully.
