ACE After-School in Queens Village
-random moments of awareness.
Cognitive Connections is a space where we can share insights about our experiences.
I remember both as a child and as an adult, being lied to and lying when being asked or responding to this question.
"What's wrong?" or
"What's the matter?"
I never thought much of it, and would often respond, "nothing.". It wasn't until I came into my awareness that each time a child asks me "What's wrong?" and there in fact is something wrong, it is because they are sensing my discomfort. If a child is sensing my discomfort they are behaving intuitively. Therefore, each time I disregard those behaviors with a lie, I communicate to that child that their internal knowing, their intuiton is not to be trusted.
I think it is important to be able to at a young age, validate your intuition because it's the confidence and self-love you build from that, that will give you the confidence to raise your hand in class, volunteer and strive for honor roll.
Internal confidence is reflected externally.
