Let's dive into youth mentorship. What does it actually do to help our youth?
It helps them find more self-confidence, self esteem, and are able to create big goals for themselves. Additionally, studies show that behavior, attitudes, and relationships improve when a youth has a mentor. Mentors help children grow and close the social and/or economic opportunity.
We really had fantastic show about mentorship this week and hope that you had some takeaways. Please read below and follow a few of the types of mentors that one should be interested in reviewing. Keep in mind mentors are great for kids, parents, individuals and seniors!
It is no secret that Pretend Play forms an essential part of a child’s development. Children learn by observing, imagining and doing. We often think of “play time” as a time reserved for running around the playground and letting off steam between lessons, or for sitting down quietly with a few good toys to tinker with. These forms of play are important in themselves, but they are not the only forms of play. Learning through play is now widely recognised by practitioners as an essential method of learning and development for young children, and a number of theorists and researchers have identified the values of pretend or imaginative play as a vital contributor to the normal development of a child.
Role playing is a great way to work out situations with children. As mentioned on MyKingstonKids Radio with our guest host, Corin and Judson from Wayfinder imagination is a critical component to child development and effective social skill building.
It’s one thing for kids to hear parents give them instructions on how to do things differently, but to be most effective, they need an opportunity to practice. Role playing provides them with an opportunity to practice new behaviour in a safe environment. You can offer feedback and coaching by creating role playing opportunities.
