Helping Your Child Become a Good Problem Solver

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Gyro Psychology The staff at Gyro Psychology specialize in children ages 2 to 21.Encouraging children to develop an effective process to solve problems is an important life skill that can be applied at home, in school, in social situations and in community environments. Apart from the confidence that comes along with having successfully calmed down, thought through a problem, generated creative solutions and worked toward implementing those solutions are critical skills that can be applied in multiple settings across the lifespan.Adults can encourage children and teens to solve problems on their own in the following ways:Encourage children & teens to describe the problemWhen you see your child or teen having a problem hold back to let them recognize and describe the problem. Taking this first step will allow your child to understand the problem and begin to generate solutions on their own. Children and teens may not perceive the problem they same way adults do but it is important for them to describe the problem and what is happening from their perspective in their own words.  In doing so, they begin to trust their observation and analytical skills. Not only is this process part of the foundation of emotional development but lies at the heart of rational thinking.Early in their development children may not be able to verbalize the problem they just know that things are not working out the way they intended. In such cases, simply state the problem for the child. If you use phrases such as, “So the problem is…” children will eventually understand that clearly identifying problems leads to generating solutions.Give children & teens time to come up with their own solutionsWhile a parent’s solution might be more effective or efficient, simply giving it to the child would deprive them of the opportunity to learn and develop confidence in his or her problem solving ability.Talk to children & teens about what is and what’s not workingTo help children and teen move from a trial and error approach to a more systematic approach to problem solving, encourage them to think about the results or consequences of their actions.  Parents can ask and make comments and ask open-ended questions to help them consider alternatives.Talking with your child or teen about what they did to solve or not solve a problem helps to establish a cause-and-effect connection in their mind. Once they have this mental association they are more apt to use this type of approach when faced with a problem in the future.Need Emotional Support?If you think your child would benefit from some additional support, consider calling us to set up an appointment with one of our psychologists at Gyro Psychology Services, Inc. (360.236.0206). We serve children and adolescents ages 2-21 with a variety of emotional, mental, and behavioral health needs.We are located at 5191 Corporate Center Ct SE, Lacey, Washington, 98503.

2010 and the fall of the Berlin Wall

first_img13 November 2009This week marked the 20th anniversary of the unification of Germany, an event that symbolises some extraordinary parallels between the hosts of the 2006 and 2010 editions of the World Cup.When Germany and South Africa slugged it out for the rights to host the tournament in 2006, they both used two of the most momentous events of the 20th century – the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of apartheid – as campaigning tools. And these two momentous events are inextricably interlinked. While East Germany provided military training and weapons to liberation movements in southern Africa, West Germany had established extensive trade ties in the region. The fall of the Berlin Wall, which ended the Cold War and East-West rivalries, also played a significant role in the collapse of apartheid.Less than three months after the wall fell, former President FW De Klerk announced the lifting of a state of emergency and the unbanning of the ANC, SA Communist Party and other bodies which paved the way for the release of Nelson Mandela.Both countries had undergone extraordinary revolutions and both countries staked their claim to hosting the biggest single-code sporting event on the planet.Closest vote in Fifa historyThese were issues that no doubt played on the minds of Fifa’s executive committee members when they voted in Zurich on July 7, 2000. It was the closest ballot in the governing body’s history with one (disputed) vote costing post-apartheid South Africa the rights to host the tournament.Acknowledging that without the fall of the Berlin Wall and reunification a year later the tournament would not have taken place in Germany, the organising committee announced that the 2006 Final Draw would be held in Leipzig, a city in eastern Germany which was part of the old communist bloc.“We want to demonstrate that the 2006 World Cup is taking place in a different country from the 1974 World Cup,” said legendary German player, coach and administrator Franz Beckenbauer.Land of IdeasIt marked the start of an extraordinary social revolution that saw the country transformed by one mega sporting event. The “Germany – Land of Ideas” initiative used the opportunity to improve the economy, attract international investment and produce a safe, profitable and spectacular tournament.The hosts may not have made it to the final but, at the end of the day, it didn’t seem to matter. Images of millions of football-loving supporters, draped in black, red and gold were flashed around the world. Germany, it seemed, had momentarily transcended its troubled legacy and liberated itself.The bitter controversy over the disputed vote for the rights to host 2006 was now long forgotten. As part of their peace offerings, the victors of that battle pledged to assist South Africa with its preparations for 2010.As a result, some of the world’s finest stadium designers, structural engineers, security experts and other authorities set their sights on modifying and improving Germany’s 2006 model.Lesssons of 2006As South Africa, prepares to host the word in just seven months, it would do well to heed the lessons of 2006. As the country continues to grapple with its post-apartheid social problems, it cannot lose sight of the enormous hurdles it has already cleared.This week, 2010 Organising Committee CEO Danny Jordaan told tourist leaders in London that winning the rights to host the 2010 World Cup might have been a bigger moment than the end of apartheid: “I think it was almost a second liberation for us, it was a huge moment of joy … the second affirmation of the worth of our country.”Either way, the 2010 World Cup presents us with our best chance of creating a model of unification to resolve many of the social problems facing us.Urquhart is a former Fifa World Cup media officer and the current editor of Project 2010last_img read more

Yahoo Prepping Personalized Mobile News Platform

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#mobile#news#web#Yahoo Yahoo is reportedly preparing to launch a new publishing platform next week which will deliver personalized news content to mobile devices. The content will come from users’ social media connections, like Facebook and Twitter, plus users’ declared preferences, search history and other sources.Although the service will be available on Yahoo’s website, too, it has been specifically customized for mobile devices like Android smartphones, the iPhone and tablet computers.Yahoo Jumps on News Personalization BandwagonAccording to a New York Times article citing two unnamed sources, the new platform will be revealed at next week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The concept sounds similar to other mobile apps that use your social networking feeds to customize your reading experience. With the popular iPad app Flipboard, for example, the magazine is built using RSS feeds for popular websites or your own Google Reader RSS subscriptions plus updates from friends on Twitter and Facebook and photos from Flickr. The Yahoo app also sounds similar to My6Sense, a smartphone news reader which builds on top of RSS, Twitter, Facebook and Google Buzz feeds for personalized news filtering.But the concept of customized mobile experiences created through social news curation isn’t limited to these two applications, by any means. There’s also the recently launched NewsMix, AOL’s forthcoming Editions app and the Twitter-based TweetMag, to name just a few. It’s a burgeoning trend not just for mobile applications, but for the consumption of news in general. As ReadWriteWeb editor Richard MacManus noted in a recent post, “the future of the newspaper is about increased personalization, interactivity, social features, more choice of niche content. It’s no longer about serving up a selection of middle-of-the-road fare every day and hoping that satisfies a large chunk of the newspaper-reading population…”What that means is that Yahoo’s mobile app strategy, whatever it may be, is at least moving in the right direction while also playing up the company’s core strengths. Yahoo’s Web homepage has offered a personalized experience for years, allowing users to customize what content is displayed, the layout and other items. Unfortunately for Yahoo, the idea that your Web experience begins with a singular homepage or portal has faded in popularity with the advent of tabbed browsing and always-on broadband and mobile Internet connections. You don’t have to launch a news portal to get caught up on the news from the Web anymore – you’re always connected, always “dialed in.”Not Just an App, a PlatformThe New York Times article said the mobile platform, code-named “Deadeye,” has been in development for several months with a team of 50 engineers focused on the project. Yahoo also plans to work with outside publishers like Hearst to create third-party apps powered by the platform’s engine.In other words, Yahoo is not just launching one Flipboard-esque mobile competitor, it seems, but a platform which would allow publishers to build their own personalized apps, too. Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz had promised “a new wave of mobile apps” to investors during Yahoo’s earnings call in January, a strategy that the company hopes will help its declining revenue and audience share. It remains to be seen if that will hold true.

A Bridge Over Passivhaus Waters

first_imgAs the Passivhaus standard becomes less of a novelty and more widely embraced by designers and builders in the U.S., it seemed logical that some of the standard’s advocates would create an independent forum for sharing news, project ideas, and technical expertise, and for generally promoting the standard.And that is exactly what happened. Members of Passive House California, New York Passive House, and Passive House North-West last year cofounded a group called American Passive House Network and, on January 16, announced the rollout of its website as a resource for all things Passivhaus. APHN membership is limited to regional Passivhaus groups — individuals and companies cannot be members — but everyone from curious consumers to industry professionals are welcome to use the site.Even though it is newly launched, the APHN site is already stocked with a healthy list of Passivhaus-related news items on its home page; a list of dozens of training sessions on its News & Events page; a breakdown of regional news on its Regional Focus page; links to Passivhaus blogs in the U.S., Canada, and Europe; a resource page for training; and contacts for both building and consultant certifications.Aiming to be useful – and apoliticalAPHN includes links to programs and resources offered by Passivhaus Institut, in Germany, and Passive House Institute U.S., in Urbana, Illinois, and naturally steers clear of the disputes that caused the two organizations to sever ties last year.“The goal of the network is to serve as a resource and communication hub for any and all existing and emerging regional Passive House organizations,” APHN said in announcing the launch of the site. “We choose to remain independent from the growing body of training and certification entities on the US market. We hope this allows the Passive House market to develop and flourish organically. We endeavor to promote all groups who share our common interest in promoting the adoption of the Passive House standard across the North American continent.”One of the volunteers who has helped establish the APHN is New York architect Ken Levenson. “It is difficult to be part of the Passive House Alliance U.S. and still retain independence, and not serve the interests of PHIUS,” Levenson explained. “Passive House Alliance U.S. is not independent — it serves the interests of PHIUS. Folks wanted something that wasn’t tied to any organization that was involved in certifying or training, or any organization that had a business interest in one field or another. Basically we wanted a neutral forum to promote anything and all things passive house. PHIUS is, for justifiable business reasons, very invested in their approach and what they are doing. We want to be able to offer clarifying statements and not to take positions — to be a tool for regional groups. We intend to work hard to maintain a sense of neutrality.”last_img read more

Compulsory transition to Touch Football Online (TFO)

first_imgTouch Football Australia (TFA) as part of our Strategic Plan 2011-2015, has been reviewing requirements related to the registration of individual participants. TFA has a particular strategic objective to “Substantially increase participation to 500,000 verifiable and contactable members by 2015”, as first communicated in the TFA Membership Registration Procedure Memorandum, released May 2012. As the constituted national organisation for Touch Football, TFA has subsequent requirements for affiliated members as stipulated in the TFA Constitution. Clause 15 of the constitution outlines details about how an affiliate remains recognised by TFA and simple requirements to remain compliant. A copy of the full Constitution and Strategic Plan can be found on the TFA website www.touchfootball.com.au. Importantly, relevant to this communication affiliated associations are obligated to keep a registration of all participants within the area or under its representation. This information of participants must be provided to TFA in a recognised national format on a regular basis. This recognised format will only be accepted via Online Registration as of Season 1, 2015.The Constitution deems participants as a person who regularly participates, including but not limited to officials, coaches, players or referees in a Touch Football competition controlled, organised or sanctioned by the Association.In addition to constitutional requirements, TFA needs this information as part of covering affiliates and individuals with insurance through the National Insurance Scheme.As a result of new changes in technology and societal pressure, TFA is in the process of transitioning to a national online registration system.Through a strategic partnership with Fox Sports Pulse (formerly SportingPulse), TFA has developed and released the new Touch Football Online system (TFO) to be used by affiliates and the breadth of the Touch Football community. This is a major achievement and part of the continuous technological improvements and developments being developed for the current strategic cycle; designed to better engage with, track and manage our members and their information.The TFO program is available for all recognised affiliates to converge to. Importantly, TFA aims to have all affiliates transition from paper registration processes to the new online system (TFO), by no later than Season 1 2015 (1st January, 2015).For more information, please click on the attachment below.

It’s highly, highly unlikely, to be in with the teams that are left in.”We are going to enjoy this one tonight for a couple of days before we got to Luton on Saturday for as hard a game as there will be this season, and then we are going to park it and look forward to it in the New Year whenever it is, the two-legger.”We didn’t even bother looking.
