Wise mind is a state of mind that integrates logical thinking with emotional awareness. It is a mindful state in which you make decisions by integrating different ways of knowing and don't cut off parts of your experience. It means integrating our amygdala's intuitive reactions with the wisdom of past experience and knowledge about the world.
Kids who have self-awareness do a better job self-monitoring. That means your child is able to keep track of what he's doing (either in learning or socially) and figure out what's working and what's not working. Self-awareness also leads to self-reflection.
