I agree. Kids are very affected by their parents behaviors.

I agree that the way that the parents acts has a huge impact on the way the child will act. With the economy children have a understanding of what is going on and why they aren't able to do things that most of the time would be no problem. For example not going on a family vacation, or not going to see family memebers casue of gas.

I agree that the poor economy really does affect children. If they see their parents upset and worrying about what they are going to do about paying a bill or getting a job, the child is going to worry. And like the video mentioned, if the child is worrying about those types of things it's going to affect their schoolwork.

I agree with Natalie but I also think that it is a good idea to create a predictable environment in the classroom like the woman said. Then it is not unpredictable and the students know what to expect and therefore nothing will come up unexpected to cause them more stress.

I think kids know more about the world than we think they do. I think constancy for every kid is very important even if we are not going through economics hard times.
