Based on quarantine fatigue we all experience due to Covid19 pandemic, and my passion for connection, mentorship, emotional intelligence and philosophy, the idea of creating online social club for pre-teens was born.
I want to address pre-teen needs for socialization in the distance learning environment and introduce them to big ideas of philosophy in order to open up their minds to the wisdom of the world through engaging conversations.
One important aspect of pre-teen education is learning acceptable human interaction, socialization styles, and cooperation mechanisms. The elements that are crucial for Agile mindset from the early ages.
During pre-teen years, children test their personalities and behaviors in various situations against the expectations and reactions of others. As others respond to their behavior and choices, pre-teens redefine and hone their actions and reactions enough to form behavior episodes that stabilize their personalities.
I want to show pre-teens how fulfilling communication could be! How much they can learn about who they are through being with others (building self-awareness) How important it is to resolve conflicts and cooperate.
This online program will provide opportunities to build social skills (wise and unwise responses), cultivate positive emotions, practice communication skills and develop active listening skills. All of this while learning about topics such as meaning of life, happiness, procrastination, goodness, resilience; reading stories of virtues and discussing ideas from Buddha, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and other great thinkers through engaging conversations.
The program is available worldwide to English-speaking audience.
