a parent’s unconditional love triumphs all

Unconditional Love : When you interact with your child in a loving, non-judgmental and patient way, they consistently feel that they are “good”.When you are harsh, short-tempered or hard to please, they consistently label themselves as “bad.”Strong parental love comes from overall interactions with your child where the outcome is consistently the child thinking, “I’m good”.It is so important to have your child believe that they are “good” after every interaction, even when there is an issue or problem to work through. The child feeling that they are “good” depends on the type of love we offer them in easy times as well as harder times. You can still be firm and have consequences, but the tones we use, the listening we give and the validations we offer show them that they are lovable and valuable to us. When there is sadness or a problem: focus on the feeling first, then you can tackle the behavior.Make sure that as the parent, you have dealt with your own emotion with the problem before addressing it with your child. You must be calm and in control to be of any help at all.If a parent’s anger is too strong when a child makes a mistake, the child will learn to be extra mean and harsh to themselves and to others when he does something wrong Continue reading

Student Stress | InspireEducation

A recent article in the Guardian revealed some worrying figures around student well-being in the UK:“Being a student is hard, according to the latest study from the National Union of Students. Specifically, it’s hard on your mental health: 80% of the 1,200 UK students surveyed reported feeling stressed, with 55% experiencing anxiety and 50% suffering from insomnia or sleeping problems. One in 10 reported “suicidal feelings” and, perhaps most poignantly, 40% of the sample reported feelings of “worthlessness” or “hopelessness”.”Although this was a recent study of University Students the idea that young people are stressed is prevalent to students in our secondary schools and colleges also.In 2011 The Family Doctor Association and YoungMinds a mental health charity both cited significant rises in 16-17 year olds presenting with high levels of stress.  Parents voiced concerns about the “intolerable pressure” put on their children, as the number of children on prescribed medication for anxiety grew.Worrying still is the ONS report that shows a rise in suicides amongst female students in a study between 2007 & 2011.Stress and anxiety can be caused by many factors including:Exam Stress Peer & Family pressure Concerns for their future – Choosing the right pathway, Worrying about tuition fees, youth unemployment Financial Concerns Juggling part-time work and school work Personal Relationships Lack of confidence, Self-Esteem, Self-Worth Bullying When young people present with high levels of stress and anxiety this should not be ignored and it is a real concern that the pastoral/metal health support services within Local Authorities, Universities and Schools are being cut.In April InspireEducation ran a “Keep Calm and Pass Your Exam” Workshop to 6th form students in Cambridgeshire.  The workshop had been requested by the Local Authority who with local schools identified high levels of stress amongst their 6th forms pupils.In the evaluation:82.5% of students said that there stress levels where poor and they lacked the knowledge and ability to manage their stress 66% of students said that stress was a factor in their lives 66% of  students said that stress played a factor in their ability to perform well at school 100% of students said that their knowledge of stress and stress management had improved after the workshop 66% of students said that they felt that the workshop would help them cope and perform better at school It is well documented that a lack of Self-Confidence, Self-Esteem and increased Stress and Anxiety are bigger problems in society than ever before.  For our young people through league tables, point systems and aspirations we have created an environment that will cause even the most confident and relaxed students to experience unhealthy levels of stress.As a society I think that there are some real questions that we should be asking ourselves, is this what we want for our young people, is putting our children under intolerable pressure something we accept as a society?We know that this situation is not going to right itself anytime soon, and I expect with continuing high levels of youth unemployment adding to the pressure on career choices and academia success , the pressure on schools to achieve outstanding  the coming years will see higher levels of mental health problems for our young people.Teaching young people the techniques to manage stress, to build their self-confidence and self-esteem is now even more important as part of our duty to ensure their spiritual, moral and social well-being and development.Stress, Anxiety, lack of Self-Confidence and Self-Esteem may for some students be barriers to progression and attainment.  Students from disadvantaged backgrounds may be at a greater risk of experiencing some of these emotional barriers.The InspireEducation team is made up of highly skilled IAG and Careers Education Practitioners, Recruiters, Enterprise Specialists and Life/Career Coaches.  As part of aim to support the successful transition of young people through education and into employment we have developed a series of coaching workshops which specifically address these barriers:Stress Management Confidence & Self Esteem Boosting Relationship Management Balance (looks at money, health, work & study) These sessions are typically two hours long and can be delivered to up to 25 students at a time.  The purpose of the sessions is to provide students with an insight into these areas and explore ways in which they can take control and manage the subject for themselves.The workshops are available for year 7 pupils through to University students and delivered by our team of highly skilled trainers across England.For more information please contact info@i2e-education.co.uk Continue reading
