April 2018 Newsletter
April Character Building: Patience
Patience teaches children the value of delaying gratification, a skill necessary for maturity.
Patience can help develop the ability to think through and resolve problems; it can counteract
impulsivity and acting out behaviors. The value of patience lies in its ability to lead to inner calm
and emotional strength of character. Teaching patience by example helps children learn
resilience, self-containment, and the ability to self-soothe.
