We “meet the child where he is.” In this 12 -week program we investigate and build trust. Through play, I assess learning style: disposition, modality learning environments, talents, and interests. We discover boundaries, identify motivation. Reducing and mitigate drama is a priority. Drama will go away when the words and feelings are clearly expressed in a grounded emotion, with definite, fair, agreed-upon consequences.
During the Discovery phase, you have a lifeline– me. We will navigate those challenging moments together, as they arise. Each time we work through a moment together, it will become easier and more natural. You will learn how to roll smoothly through whatever is thrown at you.
a. Proof of concept design. Navigation and strategies are refined. It is not easy to be really present every moment you are with your child. We design how. It is also challenging to disengage from the drama. We formulate techniques that work for you. This process takes 3 months.
b Design Finalization: In this phase, we fine-tune the operating instructions. Everyone can do some things well and struggles with others. We identify ways to compensate for our challenging areas. We integrate what we learned in the Investigation cycle into specific applications of structures and practices, designing tools specifically for your child.
With the information we gathered in the investigation cycle, we create conversations and systems. In this process we begin to apply our now-complete operating instructions to tasks and small activities to develop good habits and processes. These thought-habits and processes will develop into productive character traits. This process takes anywhere from 3-6 months.
In this phase, we begin to create projects –We start small and build as large as the child wants to. The development in the Implementation phase becomes a habit in life. We work through the 5-part project management cycle to teach skills and processes. Kids become really good at these 5 steps of project management: Investigation, design development, planning, project creation, evaluation, which they can apply to life. The Implementation phase is available in quarterly, 6 month, year-long, sessions.
As students become accustom to the project cycle, they may need less facilitation. At this point, we remain available for maintenance programs, or programs like College Application Bootcamp. Optimally, it is during this phase when students apply to colleges or get jobs. Our maintenance programs are monthly, semi annually, annually.
For parents and educators
Creating the container:
We start by learning the language of your child’s boundaries and create, with him or her, a vocabulary to express his or her needs, clearly, with clear consequences. Teaching a child about boundaries and consequences will give him or her tools which transfer to all areas of life.
Supporting success: if you begin these conversations and create habits of productive thoughts when kids are young, you will create characteristics that will lead your child to success.
We discover the construct of his or her internal environment, revealing motivations that drive action. We can give him the tools to want to do it himself.
We need to create habits while they are young. If they have a clear understanding of inspiration, decision, action, consequence at an early age they can successfully avoid more serious situations that will crop up when they are older.
When the child designs his or her own consequences, frequently they are more effective than what we might have come up with. In addition, the child has ownership in the consequences, and he or she will be thinking about those consequences in the moment.
