How to Talk to Children with Cassie Becerra

April 12, 2018

Cassie Becerra has worked as an Early Childhood Educator for 17 years.  She worked with children from 12 months-6 years in a classroom setting until 2010.  From 2010 until 2015 she cared for two boys; one who was 18 months and the other who was born four months later.  Cassie worked closely with this family as a nanny until both boys began elementary school.  At that point she returned to a school setting and  is currently the Director at Kinder Haus Montessori.   After working with many children of varying ages over the years she began making a correlation between the behaviors of children in response to how their caregivers spoke to them; recognizing that specific wording could easily trigger a defensive or oppositional response in children unintentionally.  She reached the conclusion that it was essential for the adult to first look within themselves to address  their own mood, temperament and body language before a healthy connection could be made and maintained.   After a time of self-reflection Cassie began making a connection with symptoms of anxiety that stemmed from mental scripts she had learned as a child; this is where her passion was born.  She is committed to helping  other early childhood educators, parents and children maintain positive and healthy relationships. She is specifically drawn to help children foster healthy connections with peers and adults by offering scripts that they can grow into adulthood with; scripts that ultimately become their inner voice.
