NEWSFLASH: It has been a busy conference season and along with my keynotes and presentations I attended the International Bullying Prevention Association Conference in Nashville
and the NAEYC Annual Convention in Washington, DC.
I attended these with the visionary musician and author,
Jim Mayer. We have been working together to creating the IM4U Campaign educational program designed to create a culture of social emotional awareness where Bullying is less likely to arise.
This innovative program for young children is based on 7 Principles that build understanding, community, equanimity and interconnection.
Through lively songs, activities and discussions...children develop a sense of belonging and caring. Something we all need!
