A World of Pausabilities: An exercise in mindfulness by Frank J. Sileo,Rated 4.00 out of 5
Children (and adults) live in a fast-paced, demanding and stressful world. It is often difficult to slow-down our children’s minds and bodies. This book was written to teach children to take a pause in their lives, to stop activity, to understand quiet time, and to think about what they are doing and where they are going
What does #LiveInsideOut mean?
We focus on helping kids develop the character skills (i.e. social and emotional skills) necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community, which is the “inside piece”. The “outside” part is being connected to the community through volunteerism. All of our programs combine these two elements!
