We have all heard the phrase, "In one ear and out the other." This hands on elementary counseling activity shows hows it's done. We hear two kinds of messages, things we should take to heart and things we should ignore.
We keep in our hearts kinds messages that help us to think good things. We think good things to feel good about ourselves.
When someone says something unkind, we can cope by ignoring it. That's why we let things go "In one ear and out the other."
With a little bit of craftsmanship on your end, you will build a game where kids choose from a message going In One Ear and Out The Other or In One Ear and Straight to Your Heart!
