Why Be Kind?
A bit more about US
Our Three C Principles: Connect, Communicate, and Create are grounded in the discovery of identifying what has been missing that will make the kind of difference needed to develop our kids to prepare for a future that is technology driven by training and developing them using creativity and authentic communication to mitigate the impacts that future may have with human connection and self-expression. We love technology and at the same time we have identified some of the constraints it may impose on a child’s confidence, courage, honesty and ability to be empathetic towards others. Therefore, we have created programs that train and develop students in the necessary life skills to thrive in life.
“IN A WORLD WHERE YOU CAN BE ANYTHING, BE KIND.”
Happy And Healthy Brain
Did you know your brain is the most important part of your body and that it works like the operating system in your computer? Your brain is a fascinating part of who you are and it controls and evaluates everything that happens in your body, such as the thoughts you think about all day long, the things you remember and it enables to you run, sing, read and eat. Your brain is like the wildest invention ever created that sends messages to every part of your body so that you can blink, breathe, digest your food, and stay alive by making your heart beat.
Just like your favorite foods, music and friends that keep your heart happy, there are many things that keep your brain happy. Having a happy and healthy brain gives you the energy and desire to live a joyful life. Being joyful is so important because when you are feeling joy, others around you can’t help but to feel joy, and that is why your lifestyle needs to be filled with happy brain habits. Habits such as eating a balanced diet, getting lots of sleep, regular exercise, and positive thinking that will fill you with positive and happy emotions make your brain happy and healthy. Your daily routines can impact your brain either in a positive or negative way. We believe that when you are aware of what makes your brain happy or unhappy, you will have all the super tools you need to make smart choices. These choices will create harmony and balance between your heart, brain and body so that your confidence will skyrocket, and the love you feel for yourself will expand causing you to be more compassionate, empathetic and kind towards others.

COVID-19 & You
As time goes on in this pandemic the doctors and scientists are learning more about the Coronavirus and how to best protect ourselves. As a result, it is now recommended that we were face masks when we go out, especially when it is difficult to socially distance. Since the doctors and nurses in the hospitals need medical masks to stay safe at work, it is recommended that we use cloth face masks. Making your own face mask is a fun activity to do with your family.
When people sneeze, cough, talk or sing they produce tiny water droplets that can travel in the air for a little while before they fall onto the ground or other surfaces. Germs including the new Coronavirus can live in those water droplets and if they come in contact with someone else they can catch the virus. The doctors and scientists know that the furthest a water droplet can travel when someone coughs or sneezes is 2 meters before it falls out of the air, so that is why it’s important to stay at least 2 meters away from other people when you are outside. If someone sneezes you will still be safe if you are 2 meters away. How far is 2 meters? About 2 arms lengths away.
Hand washing is the most important habit you can have to keep yourself healthy! Why? Because think about all the things we touch everyday. Germs and viruses are invisible so we never know if or when we might have touched something that is covered with germs and viruses that could make us sick if we then touch our eyes, nose or mouth. Washing our hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, making sure we get to all the nooks and crannies between our fingers and under our nails washes all the germs down the sink and helps us stay healthy. To make sure you are washing for long enough, singing “Happy Birthday” twice is a good trick. Remember to wash your hands when you come home after being outside, after you sneeze or cough, and before you eat.
If you cannot wash your hands with soap and water, hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol is a good substitute. It is important to use enough to cover all of the nooks and crannies between your fingers, the fronts and backs of your hands (usually 2 pumps), and to rub your hands for at least 20 seconds. It’s important to rub your hands together until they are completely dry–do not wipe your hands on your clothes to dry them faster! If you do, you are not killing all the germs on your hands AND you are dirtying them again by picking up any germs that might be on your clothes. Remember, it’s important to wash with soap and water before eating, and as soon as you come home from being outside.

And Impact The Future
Dare To Dream, Think and Act BIG!
“You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut. The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
– Dr. Seuss
Be curious about the world around you, take the time to allow your imagination to grow and never stop learning. Curiosity is the magic ingredient to believing in possibilities and dreaming big. Always know you CAN make a difference with everyone, anytime and every where you go. Imagine waking up every morning and before you start your day you tell your brain that “Today is going to be a wild adventure, filled with so much wonder that I am going to be the one to make everything WONDERFUL?” When we stop and look around we can often see things that we never saw before, and our curiosity allows our imaginations to be free and be happy. You are designed to do BIG things, with your BIG heart and when your heart and mind come together like best friends you get to be someone who can create the future.
Be The Change
That Will Change The World
When Martin Luther King Jr. gave his speech “I have a dream” he never realized how his words and actions would change the lives of millions of people and begin one of the greatest movements towards freedom. Gandhi dared thousands of people to be brave enough to create peace, and Mother Teresa always said “do small things with great love”. When you read the words “be the change” what does that mean to you? We believe that it means that we, you, me and every person can be the one to change the world. We all can be our own versions of Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, and Gandhi. If you want people to take care of the earth and be kinder, it needs to start with you. At I Dare U 2 Bee, we are charged up, filled with hope, and have a big vision because we know there is no planet B. Now more than ever YOU ARE NEEDED, just like the trees need the bees, the fish needs the ocean, and our bodies need air. Without you it is one less person that will show our earth some love.
