Effects of trauma on the brains of children

What I found most interesting was the information relating to the effects of trauma on the brains of children. The fact that stress related to trauma creates toxins in the brain is especially troubling and sad. What I found most valuable was the chapter on mean vs nice and the fact that it can be turned into lessons that make students re-evaluate their interactions with each other. Having students look back at their actions and think about the impact it had on their classmates makes for a better classroom climate. It makes students evaluate their actions, which can then have the effect of them changing their behavior. Having the knowledge that some portion of my students will have gone through trauma, I can better prepare lessons and interactions that will accommodate their needs.

Tools for constructive conversations – A Parent

We now have the tools to have these conversations with our nuclear family, extended family, our community and in our workplace.

Relationships and connections are so important!

These reminders about connections/relationships are so important. It can feel difficult to fit it all in, but without relationships and connection, the rest of the work is SO MUCH HARDER!

This is good stuff and it is definitely powerful in the way that changes students’ lives.

It was awesome to share the info with our folks in Nebraska schools and colleges! You have every right for your heart to grow big. This is good stuff and it is definitely powerful in the way that changes students’ lives. I’m proud of you, Jill, and proud to know you!!

I would 100% recommend it

Being in Gen Text small groups in high-school has many beneficial aspects. I would 100%, recommend it to other students considering the various benefits in people skills.

My experience with Generation Text has given me a framework for living

Being a part of the Generation Text Online mentor program has taught me the importance of being mentally and physically happy.

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person
