To my parents and teachers, it might be hard to understand that children could suffer from stress. After all, they seem to have it so easy when compared to our daily struggles. However, stress and serious distractions are common in every child's life. From problems on the playground to issues at home, children often suffer from stress at a higher level than adults.
When a child suffers from excessive stress, they will struggle in the classroom. This is a fact that is addressed in this DVD, which follows a program created by Dr. Martha Eddy. She created “Eye Openers” as a way of improving focus in American students by eliminating stress from their lives in a constructive way.
Students and teachers who watch this DVD will learn relaxation techniques, hand-eye coordination improvement methods, posture-boosting techniques, and ways to filter out distractions from their peripheral vision. The idea is to help children learn how to manage their stress in a positive way. It is also designed to give them a stronger basis on which to fight distractions in the classroom, such as chatty classmates and bullies.
By mastering these techniques and others like them, American students can become better learners and prepare for the rigors of more challenging educational tasks. These techniques are also vital for teachers to master, as they can give them an insight into the secretly stressful and distracting world of their students.Eye Openers Are Mind Openers: Attention Exercises for the Classroom (Enhanced DVD)
