Putting Assetes Into Action: 40 never looked so good

-A A +A
By The Staff

This week we look at the next 20 steps on the path, the External Assets. These are the Assets that as adults on the sidelines, we can directly impact.

These are the easy assets, the ones we don’t have to make too much of an effort to demonstrate. Think about it, honesty, integrity, responsibility, you may occasionally have to intentionally think about them, but it doesn’t take much to do the right thing.

As we get closer to starting a new school year, we begin with the assets that we need to hit the ground running. The assets of achievement motivation, engagement, bonding to school and reading for pleasure, these are all part in parcel of what school is all about.

How do we start the school year with motivation, engagement and bonding to school? I think it has a lot to do with parents and guardians having a happy attitude about the whole picture. As role models, we need to help students find the good things in every situation. Don’t fuss about a class with a certain teacher or gripe too openly about a mistake made in scheduling classes.

Tensions will rise when the school bell rings and adults should demonstrate restraint and patience, especially in front of your child. Let your child see you thank someone for their time when they’re trying to fix an error for you.
