The Divide Between Bullying and Conflict

posted by monicajenner66 2 months ago
tags: education self directed learning
Let’s define the terms.

Conflict can include being rude or mean.

Being rude is when someone is not trying to intentionally hurt the other person. It isn’t a repetitive behavior, and there is not an imbalance of power. For example, Judy asked Martha if she could borrow a pencil. But Martha explained that it wasn’t her pencil, she borrowed it from another friend, so she didn’t want to let Judy use it.

Being mean is when someone is trying to intentionally hurt the other person but they are usually nice, and there is no imbalance of power. For example, if Kyle told Mark that he was a terrible baseball player who should never try out for the baseball team, then Kyle is being mean to Mark.

5 Hacks to Change Your Thinking

5-hacks-to-change-your-thinking

The mind is a powerful, creative thing. If you don’t believe me, then ponder reality as you watch the thought-provoking movie Inception; or read a biography about the life of Steve Jobs; or observe the fascinating and unique architecture of Antoni Gaudi; or absorb yourself in the imaginary world of Harry Potter. People creatively use their minds to change our world, and your mind is not excluded!

Your thoughts can literally change the world - maybe just your own little corner, or perhaps the entire globe! Transform your inner monologue from boring and routine to complex and powerful. Change your thoughts and you’ll boost your relationships, work ethic, satisfaction, and joy.

But wait a minute, that sounds like a huge task: to literally transform the way I think? Yep, it’s not as simple as 2+2, but it’s also not as complex as [97146.517 x (5.723 + 0.937215)]2 either. One modification to your thoughts can inspire mega changes! But let’s begin with just one.

Where Students Find the Freedom to Learn

kids playing

Makarios is a progressive private school in Grapevine, TX. We serve families with children ages 5-18 by supporting self-directed learning in an environment that balances freedom and responsibility and prepares young people to thrive in today’s complex world.

You Deserve More Choices in Education

We recognize that many families are deeply dissatisfied with the experience children are having in traditional public and private schools. Often, kids are bright—but bored and not challenged to reach their full potential. They may feel bullied and isolated. Or, they may have been “labeled” with a learning disability or behavior problems.

At Makarios, we see kids as you see them—the way they really are. Naturally talented, accelerated learners, rambunctious and energetic, curious and thoughtful. Above all, diverse and unique. We invite you to visit a community where children can experience education differently.

Cultivating a “Growth Mindset” in Wilderness Therapy

Hot Chocolate

When my best friend first tossed the idea my way, I had two competing thoughts, of equal size and strength, immediately pop into my brain. Thought #1: “She believes in you, and wants what’s best for you. She wants to have a fun experience together.” Thought #2: “She is a lunatic, and even after being friends for 35 years, she is clearly trying to kill me.”

What was the idea she dared me to consider? To run a 10k race together, under the guise of “It’s for a GOOD CAUSE! Don’t you want to see these elementary school kids have the chance to have a new school?!”

Putting On Your Oxygen Mask First: Self-Care for Parents and Givers

blue

As the Family Support Therapist at Blue Ridge, I work with the parents of our students in the field. My role is to offer space for families to experience their own process, which often parallels the student process but is distinctly different for obvious reasons. Teens are in the woods, with both the discomfort that it brings and the luxury of not having to attend to their “normal” lives. 

They get to be completely present with their feelings, wrapped up in 24/7 support. On the flip side, parents are trying to manage day to day life, kids, finances, responsibilities, etc. AND participate in this incredibly intense emotional experience. Parents have often been in crisis mode with their kids for months or years leading up to the wilderness experience and are quite simply exhausted. This sets the stage for discussion of self-care…before we can do meaningful work on family dynamics, parents must restore some semblance of their own emotional balance and stability. This is the essence of
