Sneakers 41-I know that mentoring children is really a wonderful thing. But children can be mentors as well.
In my child’s school the children have a peer mentor. For example, the children in second grade are paired up with children in the fifth grade.
They do a social studies project together and now these kids know each other and might be friends.
The school does this in order to encourage children to mentor each other and cut down on bullying.
As a matter of fact, the honor roll students tutor the struggling students afterschool in a special program. This way the struggling student gets mentored from the more adept student and both of their self esteems soar.
Peer tutoring like this can be very effective.
