Edmund Sprunger, “Awareness”
As we gradually help children develop greater awareness of what they’re doing, the quality of their playing grows. This session gives strategies for raising that awareness. The strategies take into account two important pitfalls: raising a child’s awareness in the absence of skill creates disaster, and awkwardness in approaching a child’s challenges can complicate the parent-child relationship…and vice versa.
Ann Marie Novak, “The Art of Reviewing with a Purpose”
