THE POWER OF POSITIVE ATTENTION:
Teaching our children to achieve and maintain focus in a world of distractions.
Thursday, February 2nd 2012, 7:30-9 pm, The Pennington School
What our children pay attention to becomes a part of them and their lives. Today’s fast–paced world constantly threatens their positive attention, attempting to redirect it to objects, experiences, and thoughts that do not serve them well. Television,, video games, interactive websites, drugs and alcohol use all impact the attention spans of our children. Dr. August Leming will share techniques for harnessing a “here-and-now” experience, fostering healing, growth, and personal success with children and adults. He will demonstrate how powerful a focused human mind can be for both achievement and joy.
- How can we as parents help focus our children’s attention on the things that support their overall health and well- being, reduce stress, and assist them in resisting the temptations of destructive behavior?
- What exactly is the “library of the mind” and how do we access it?
- What are the techniques that foster a positive adolescent focus?
