We know that our Benfer Bobcats are the best and this year we are using the Nurtured Heart Approach, developed by Howard Glasser, to let them know all of the great qualities that each of them have. For more information and specific details about this approach, read below. If you would like more information about how we're using this approach at Benfer, or how you can use it at home, contact Meghan Blakey at 832-484-5933 or

The Children's Success Foundation website states:

The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a relationship-focused methodology founded strategically in The 3 Stands™ for helping children (and adults) build their Inner Wealth® and use their intensity in successful ways. It has become a powerful way of awakening the inherent greatness in all children while facilitating parenting and classroom success.

The 3 Stands are:
Absolutely No: Refuse to energize negativity
Absolutely Yes: Relentlessly energize the positive
Absolutely Clear: Establish and maintain absolute clarity around the rules, always give an
un-energized consequence when a rule is broken

Information will be provided throughout the year about the various ways that Nurtured Heart is being used at Benfer. Be on the lookout for information handed out at Meet the Teacher, in Tuesday folders, and at Open House.
