10 Ways Parents Can Bring Social-Emotional Learning Home - EdSurge News

https://www.edsurge.com/news/2020-04-02-10-ways-parents-can-bring-social-emotional-learning-home

There are some really great ideas for how to help our children with social-emotional learning while at home. This is probably no something we realize our teachers do on a daily basis and we know as parents we do this as well. During this more challenging time confined at home we don't want to forget that our children are not always capable of saying and expressing how they feel. Identifying emotions is hard enough for adults, but for a child still trying to find just the vocabulary to speak it can be even more difficult. Please be a good role model for your children. Share how you feel and lead by example about how we behave when we have both joy and sadness in our lives. I hope this article gives you a few ideas. If you want more parenting helps, I am still teaching parenting classes and would happily get you started today.

Happy Parenting!
