An article on our blog and also published in @activefamilymagazine: Teaching Children Tolerance. One of the many benefits of raising a family in the San Francisco Bay Area is the rich blend of cultural traditions represented within the diverse population. We have the privilege of interacting with those of differing cultures on a daily basis both within our workplace and neighborhoods. That gift is extended to our children where the exposure to diversity in #culture and thought spawns an openness and empathy for others. Classrooms are increasingly #diverse, reflecting the community dynamic where families work and play. Our children’s circle of friends is more diverse than it was even a generation ago. In many respects, children may be ahead of their parents regarding their exposure to cultural differences. Even so, the strongest influence on a child’s values and life perspective come from lessons taught in the home. It is the role of parents to prepare children to live, learn, and work in an ever-increasingly diverse society. Teaching #tolerance not only means teaching #respect, openness, and empathy, it also provides key ingredients to success in today’s and tomorrow’s world: the ability to understand, appreciate, and work with others...

Yes for Chess (Tuesdays 4:15-5:15) March 29, 2016 - May 31, 2016. $200 Yes For Chess takes a unique approach to teaching #chess to #children. Rather than forcing students to memorize lengthy combination #patterns and judging success entirely on winning, they concentrate on the end result of playing chess, which is developing #critical-thinking, #creative #problem-solving, #concentration and #patience. We believe that chess should be used as a tool to teach students #skills they will use throughout their #academic #careers. We are certain that a child's improvement in the #classroom and progress on a #chessboard are interconnected. #sanramon #danville #bayarea #eastbay
