Tools Of The Mind. Have you heard of this yet? Well, I've been reading a lot about it, and I think Tools Of The Mind is ridiculous, and we need to stop pushing our children.
Tools Of The Mind is basically pre-preschool for children to teach them how to behave in preschool and/or kintergarden. Give me a break! They talk about "self-regulated" mumbo jumbo. In other words, children start school knowing their ABC's (hopefully), but they don't know how to control their social, emotional, and cognitive behaviors.
OMG, what is this world coming to? We already have children starting preschool at 3 and 4 years old, do we now have to enroll them in this Tools Of The Mind crap at 1 or 2 years old? It is ridiculous how we push and push our children.
I don't know who to be angry at, the pscho-(fill in blank) workers making up "stuff" just so they can make more money? Or the snooty parents who actually push their children so hard because they have to be better than the "Tiff's." Yeah, it used to be "the Jones."
Well, all I know is, children are pushed to the max. It's no wonder we have so many health problems in children and more crime from the younger crowd. Stress causes a lot of damage to people, not only physically, but mentally as well. I say let kids be kids for once.
If you want to read more about the Tools Of The Mind, you can read their Brochure. If you need further information, although I don't know why, you can grab the Tools Of The Mind paperback. Or the Tools Of The Mind 2nd Edition paperback.
