WHY SEL

(SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING)

AT HOME?

Social and emotional learning starts at home. Parents and families are critical partners in helping their children develop social and emotional know-how. They can model the kinds of skills, attitudes, and behaviors we want all students to master. And they can be important advocates for SEL at school.
