6. Promote Emotional Literacy
Many schools are now employing life-skills programs such as Stephen Covey’s Leader In Me. The principles of these programs are incorporated as part of school norms, expectations, and curriculum. Become familiar with the program used at your child’s school and reinforce these lessons at home. If your child’s school has yet to implement a social and emotional health program, don’t be shy to contact the school’s administration or PTA to request that one be started.
