This is extra volunteer work that I do , extra to my day to day work as a Kumon Education Supervisor.
I take part in these meetings because I see the importance of the Kumon Vision – Supervisors helping each other and building a community and thus making a positive change in the general community; Kumon centres helping children not just with academic skills but also with confidence and goal setting and other life skills.
Our Kumon motto for this year is “One by One.”
IOW, we will look at each parent and child, each Supervisor, each staff member as an individual and remember to do what is best for each person. Making a change one by one.
As I was driving home, I thought about this vision in relation to my family.
(Where are the kids, you ask? At a parish related picnic and outing. So, I have had time for the meeting and to ponder..).
What would be the effect in my family of remembering to see each member as individual, one by one?.
Over Christmas my motto was to see only the positives in my husband and in my children.
Can I continue to look for positives in 2007?
