Keep Preschoolers Cool about School

The first day of school is a momentous occasion for parent and child. Excitement, tinged with uncertainty, fillsrepparttar weeks before September. Anxious mothers coax awkward five-year-old fingers to tie shoelaces (or give up and buy sneakers with Velcro), while proud fathers urge their children to write their own names or reciterepparttar 109343 alphabet.

It used to be that children enteringrepparttar 109344 school system were expected to have mastered certain skills before arriving, but times have changed, according to Marilyn Philbrick, a primary education co-coordinator for a large, progressive school board. “We recognize that children develop at different rates, and there are no skills as such that we insist a child learn before entering kindergarten. What we like to see is a child who has confidence and a positive attitude.”

Still, starting school marks a child’s first step intorepparttar 109345 world outsiderepparttar 109346 family. There are changes and challenges to face. It’s a rare parent or child who can “let go” without some pain. To easerepparttar 109347 transition from home or nursery school to kindergarten, practice these strategies during summer:

• Talk about school. First-day jitters are common, but being frightened may be more manageable if you encourage your child to express his or her feelings.

• Read about school or help your child to “play school” with you or with friends.

3 Steps to Successfully Build a Team in any Program

"3 Steps to Successfully Build a Team in any Program" by Frank Bauer

Any x by y matrix plan has one big risk... but also one big advantage.   The biggest risk:  People in your downline might think they don't have to promote and just wait for your spillover.   The biggest advantage:  Still, it's a great way to build a deep team quick... if you andrepparttar people in your team understand that they shouldn't just sit and wait for it to happen.   The following 3 steps you need to follow and teach to build a successful team:   1. Find 2 people... It doesn't really matter if it's e.g. a 2x15 forced matrix or wider.  Ifrepparttar 109342 matrix is wider than 2, or even unlimite^d wide, I recommend to start with 2 and then go wider when your team has been fully build at least 4 levels deep.   2. Next build a relationship with them, teach them this 3 eas^y steps and motivate them until they find 2 people on their own.   3. Then motivate your 2 people to motivate their 2 people to also find 2 people ... etc.   I believe this is a much better way to build a successful team. And not to mass promote and hope that a few inrepparttar 109343 masses you sponsor build a team on their own... but instead motivate to motivate to buildrepparttar 109344 team... allrepparttar 109345 way down.   If you mass promote... you might be able to initially build a big downline... but since there will be no relationship, it will fall apart fast as well.   If you or somebody in your team has a big list of people to email to, then you or those people could send a message to all, telling them that you are looking for 2 leaders only. Ask them to email you back and tell you "why" you should choose them. Then pickrepparttar 109346 2 best ones... and move one with step 2 above.   Also if a downline member is struggling... and no matter how hard he or she tries, he or she is not able to find two on their own... e.g. due to lack of people he or she knows... then you could do such a mailing on their behalf.   The primary approach that works best is to talk via chat first withrepparttar 109347 people you know already. Those, that we already have a relationship with.   If that doesn't generate your 2 leaders... then you could userepparttar 109348 mailing approach looking for two leaders as I described
