I want to start by giving some of the beliefs we hold. They were a little awkward to learn, but our desire to work effectively with children was greater than our resistance to learning something new.
We begin by believing that every behavior we choose is the best one we could think of at the time.
Furthermore, we believe that we choose everything we think and do, and thus we indirectly choose how we feel and our physiology.
So, recognizing that our choices belong to us, and that we can evaluate our choices and make improvements.
