Changing A Life By Using THINK
|Seth showing off his THINK arm band.|
Seth was sitting in my office towards the end of October. He is a very polite kid that was a little down on his luck. He had been in trouble at home, school and spent some time out of school. He and I decided we needed a plan. He wanted to do well, and I wanted to help him do well.
I had a THINK poster hanging in my office. THINK stands before you speak, text or type think is it..True/Helpful/Important/Necessary/Kind. Seth is like, yeah, that is exactly what I need to do. I hooked him up with a reminder that he could wear and we made a deal. You make it two months and check in in the morning with me and out at the end of the day. Have teachers sign how you are doing each period and Deputy Blank and I will take you out to lunch at BW3. He said fine, deal.
Today was the day we had been waiting for. Deputy Blank picked us up in his vehicle and took us over to BW3. It was so exciting and Seth couldn't have been happier. I couldn't stop bragging to the waitress and anyone who stopped by how he is doing. Everyone either high fived him or said great job!
THINK has helped change Seth's life, and focus back on academics and enjoying his social life at school. All he had to do was look at his arm band and remember before he speaks texts or type to thinks is it True/Helpful/Important/Necessary/Kind. He did just that and accomplished his goal and we couldn't be more proud.
How do you think you could use THINK? I challenge you to use it and let me know your success story. Seth spread the word, because you rock!
