Mind in the Making

I’m paying attention more often now to those things that repeat themselves to me over and over again.  It seems that sometimes it takes a while to get my attention but when it does, it is worth it!  This fall, I’ve been exposed to opportunities over and over again to hear and read about a new book called, Mind in the Making by Ellen Galinsky.  This book speaks to seven essential skills children need to reach their fullest-potential.  The list includes:

  • Focus and Self-Control
  • Perspective Taking
  • Communicating
  • Making Connections
  • Critical Thinking
  • Taking on Challenges
  • Self-Directed Learning

Enticed to hear more?  Check out one or more of the following resources…

We often hear important information and can feel guilty that we missed an opportunity.  The most heartening part is that they say that it’s not too early or too late to begin to establish these qualities!
