The theory of seven

When you have to communicate with a large group of people, you should do so as though everyone is seven years old.
But don't talk down to people. Just make sure your speech is clear and simple.

Using the Theory of Seven

... when communicating with a large group of people:

  • Be clear about your priorities and the message you want to convey. And make sure you know your audience.
  • Avoid vague and confusing time frames.
  • Don't look down on people and don't assume others are idiots.
  • Keep things moving at such a nice pace that there is always something interesting and useful happening.
  • Be creative, unpredictable, passionate, supportive, kind and interested.

Deep Friendships

A study on sixth-graders revealed that friendship is crucial and real for kids, and can be as deep as a parental relationship.

Most parents and teachers do not understand the importance of deep bonding among friends at school and tend to regard friendships as a distraction or a nuisance.

Social Isolation and Bullying

Social isolation is the dark side of the school, in which many kids with no friends are at risk of anxiety, depression and low self-esteem. There is a perceived sense of threat with being friendless, and the young, immature mind can deeply internalize the resulting difficulties, leading to depression.

Bullying at this age is also a major problem, with those who are socially isolated becoming the most vulnerable to being bullied.
