There is a connection between punishment-based discipline, lost class time, and the many inequitable PreK suspensions that fuel the school-to-prison pipeline

GENM tools educate rather than punish children who are still learning to regulate their emotions.

Play Is Learning

Play Is Learning

It's true! Research shows that play helps to stir up neuron activity in the front end of the brain—the part that plays a critical role in regulating emotions, making plans, and solving problems.

Play builds social brains that know how to interact with others in positive ways. That’s why creating little moments for PLAY-full connection is the top priority in our brain-based approach to building social and emotional skills in children and their caregivers.

Relational Approach to Skill-Building

Relational Approach to Skill-Building

Take a closer look at our approach:

  • Play-Based. Play-based learning is intrinsically motivating for both children and adults. 

  • Tangible Tools. Concrete, tangible tools are ideal for learners big and small. This includes young children who struggle with abstract concepts like emotions as well as adults today, many of whom were never taught about their feelings when they were young.

  • Relational Approach. As adults, we lead and guide children most powerfully by example. Our multi-generational approach to social-emotional learning recognizes the adult's need for tools and support to regulate their emotions before they can teach these skills to children.  

“GENM products are amazing tools that can help educators seamlessly embed SEL into their everyday practices. I've seen firsthand how easy it has been for my teachers to utilize their resources and have been astonished by our results.”

-Colby Heckendorn

Help Bridge Social-Emotional Learning Into The Home!

We created this, "Dear Families..." letter to help you share our 3 Step approach for building social and emotional skills in the early childhood classroom with parents!

81% of educators say a lack of reinforcement at home is a big challenge for schools implementing SEL. 66% say it’s the biggest challenge.

“Time-outs and punishment for unwanted behaviors in the early childhood classroom are ineffective. As a long-time educator and therapist, I worked with so many adults who didn't know how to respond instead of react to challenging behaviors from young children... so I created a solution! Adults today have the science but often lack the skills and mindset necessary to raise children using strength-based or "restorative" discipline methods. Having tangible tools to guide these adults in their learning so they can better educate the children in their care, makes a huge difference in lowering teacher burnout and lost learning time due to suspensions.”

-Suzanne Tucker, Founder of Generation Mindful, on the Time-In ToolKit®
