Believing in Children

Believe in children quote (Brick by Brick)
from Teaching with Intention

How do you show your kids you believe in them? Do you show them you think they are competent and capable? Do you give them opportunities to practice their competence and capabilities?


  1. I think that I show them that I believe in them by not rescuing them right away when they struggle with something, and by encouraging them to do things for themselves. I'm caring for kids that are very young, ages 3 and under, but still they are capable of many things when given the opportunity to do them!

  2. I teach high school and I've learned to establish relationships first instead of jumping right into the curriculum. I start with a Where I'm From poem which allows them to share things about themselves and it creates a culture of trust before we get started for the academic year.
