LC appreciates this approach to teaching her children. She wants to make the learning process fun, interesting and a family involved educational experience. LC believes her children are in the first stages of substance abuse and if they tackle this as a family in a positive manner, the children will learn and not feel shame. Adaptation occurs in this instance when LC expresses interest in the website version of teaching.

Euna was granted a 504 plan to provide accommodations for Euna in school so that she could succeed.
The Concerted Cultivation of Superiority Whether they chose to spoil their children with love, objects, or opportunities, parents want to give their children the best childhood to prepare them for adulthood. Typically, the middle class and upper class use a parenting method Annette Lareau calls “concerted cultivation,” meaning that parents foster children’s talents and interests. Most parents that use this style of rearing follow similar routines such as maneuvering their schedules to alote multiple extracurricular activities, emphasizing the use of vocabulary and reasoning skills, and socializing their children to be comfortable around adults. While these practices seem to be successful in creating and maintaining class reproduction, they
Another target for this can be the younger generation due to the fact of peer pressure relations. As kids who are still trying to develop the whole notion of fitting in, it is a job that we must educate them first on the consequences if they were to make wrong decisions. To debunk the stereotypes, “Peer counseling program are also present in some schools. In these programs, students talk about mutual problems and receive support and perhaps learn coping skills from peers who have been trained in this intervention activity to not use drugs” (McKenzie 2012). Without maximizing the efforts of our younger kids who are prone to use more substances, commit crimes, develop mental illnesses, we need to start at a base where we are able to talk with them rather than tell them x, y,
According to Selekman (2013, p.187), assessment of the community can bring assistance to the school in cases of chronic health problems, and it can help identifying a specific initiative, program, services, or activities that might benefit the students. Educating Joey and his family about the community 's resources and associations, it will increase his wellbeing., To promote the best environment, safety, health outcome, and education, the school nurse will need parental consent to involve other school team members and Joey 's doctor in his care plan. Collaborating with Joey 's parents to in order to maintain his health and educational goals is essential. Also, because of Joey 's walking limitation, a wide emergency plan will have to take place for an emergent situation, such as a fire or intruder in the school building.
School counselor understand the child’s developmental stages and understands that children can be impacted differently depending on their developmental stage. Riley (2000) mentions that school counselors across the country are being included on crisis teams, which range from those that plan for the managing of the school violence crisis to those that are actively involved in recovering from such a crisis. According to Stone and Dahir (2016) whether you believe a student is serious about suicide or not, the expression of suicidal ideation is a cry for help and should never be ignored but should be reported to parents (p. 164). When students disclose to school counselors a suicide thought, it is the school counselor’s responsibility and duty to inform. This type of crisis cannot only impact the student who disclosed such thoughts, but also those around the student.
This life event can be a determinate of mental and potential issues they may experience. At such a young age, children do not fully understand the world and any major event can potentially impact their mental health. Therefore the mandatory parental classes they are forced to take after a separation are important. These classes explain to parents how to deal with children after experiencing a separation. If we were to include more information relating to mental health issues, we could better educate parents of potential signs of depression and anxiety commonly experienced by children.
They can even be tied into health education classes. As growing students, they need to know whats right from wrong.

So on a personal note it puts more emphasis on the necessity to invest in preschool education to young children so as to maximize their overall well-being. And I commend the parents of our preschooler for having the same vision because I truly trust that, behind a child’s success is a parent who first believed that his/her child can. As preschool can be rigorous nowadays, since the children are expected to learn certain skills to prepare them for elementary
There is also a short story about Otis Orchards Elementary School on pages 133-134, and explains that the teachers there went through extensive training about how to help children dealing with trauma or problematic home situations. Wedge then goes on to talk about how the children at this school were better behaved and scoring higher on tests after this training had been implemented, essentially arguing that adverse personal lives should be properly dealt with at school in order to combat ADHD-like symptoms. Showing a real-life example of how this training was having a positive impact on children causes the reader
Often students do not know how to reach out, who to talk to or how to respond to a conflict. For this reason conflicts escalate, even though there are people who are able to train teachers and peers to handle such conflict in healthy way. The traditional school conflict resolution method, where adult decides the outcome for the student is becoming inefficient, so peer mediation provides the student with an opportunity to talk it out and resolve the conflict they. The students see the value n the program, they want to learn how to act when in conflict, beside just with anger and save valuable relationships. This peer mediation program would be effective by reducing violence and fights.
After the child is diagnosed with ADHD the parents should ask their pediatrician about all the possible treatments to help their child deal with ADHD. When looking at treatments for their child the parents should consider taking behavior therapy first before requiring medication. Many people may think that behavior therapy is only for their children, but truth is parents should also attend behavior therapy for parents, so that they can learn new skills to teach their children and to help them with their behavior. Once the parents realize that that their child 's behavior has improved, but they are still having a difficult time focusing in school, now parents should look into the different medications for ADHD. When looking at different medications parents should be cautious that not all medications has an effect on their child 's behavior and that their child may have to try multiple medications until they find the one that has a positive effect on their child 's behavior.
Hi Stasea, I enjoyed your thoughtful post. You provided beneficial information about play therapy. An important part of parent-child interaction therapy (PICT) is that the parents and child interact with the counselor coaching the parents from another room (Henderson & Thompson, 2011). Another important technique associated with PCIT is that the counselor gives the parents lessons and role plays with them to provide them with important strategies to use (Henderson & Thompson, 2011). As a parent of a 6-year-old girl that was divorcing, it would be hard to work with the other parent.
The data collected from the results show parents the quality education their children are getting at school, also the requirements of their child 's teachers and their child progress in education subjects.

Kids Castle is a before and after school child care program that works together with the Kenosha Unified School District to provide fun educational care to kindergarten through fifth grade students. Our daily job duties as Kids Castle teachers include homework help, organizing activities from crafts to character building and maintaining a communication network with parents. Our background in psychology is necessary for providing quality child care. In order to become a lead teacher, we must complete several child care certification books, but psychology majors waive this requirement because we have already taken classes in child and human development. We often find our job allowing us to apply the skills we learn in psychology.
