This month, gain a better understanding of the impact of your words when it comes to all forms of matter. You and your children will learn why it's so important to practice personal responsibility when it comes to your energy.

Great Day Academics
Children who act out often feel like they have no control over their life circumstances. Empowering students with the understanding of personal responsibility shows them that they do, in fact, have total control over their words, actions and thoughts every minute of the day.
We teach students to use their energy and ability to respond to situations in a way that is healthy for their mental, physical and emotional well-being.
"Telling" children to stay positive is much different than showing them the actual effects.
KIDS WHO KNOW THE POWER OF THEIR MIND
WILL ALWAYS SHINE
DO WHAT'S RIGHT AND SHINE YOUR LIGHT
THE SCIENCE OF
Much like radio waves and cell phone signals, your words and thoughts are an invisible form of energy frequency.
The law of thermodynamics, also known as the "Law of Conservation of Energy" states that energy can not be destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another. Since the words we speak carry an energetic frequency, they don't simply disappear after they are spoken. Each word is transferred, from one person to another. This creates an endless cycle are energy.
Use the Energy Lessons at the school store to learn more about matter, energy and it's impact on you.
How These Lessons
Doing this experiment with my daughter was a wake-up call for us both, and taught our family to be more responsible for the energy we bring to each situation- giving us the ability to respond with a little more care and compassion in our daily interactions. There are no shortcuts in the area of personal growth for me, but making a habit of being more aware of my thoughts and words for my physical and emotional well-being has been a great place to start.
This too, is my wish for you!
