CHICKPEA-ISMS / LANGUAGE
We model neutral and non-judgmental language to promote safety for our bodies and our feelings.
We focus on “Okay” and Not okay” versus the words “Good” and “Bad”.
We help kids think about what they could say/do differently when conflict arises.
We use language to help children identify their emotions and handle them in a safe and productive way.
We help children describe and talk about wants, needs, and differences in a neutral and non-judgmental way.
