Personal Development For Kids! Groups Offered To Kids At School/Homeschools (Clubs, Advisory, Lunch Bunch, After School, Summer Months, Online etc.) 

What are the essential skills children need to succeed in life? Academics are essential, but their are key social-emotional skill children need as well.

Emotional health is just as important to practice as physical health! Why? Because Anxiety and depression is on the rise.. Kids don’t FEEL they have the tools to manage their emotions or conflicts constructively. It is impacting them socially, emotionally, and academically. It is why I created Programs to help kids practice Emotional intelligence through Social-emotional learning.

According to the CDC:

  • 13% of children between 8-15 years-old have been diagnosed with a mental disorder. 2% of school-aged children and 8% of teens are depressed. 8% of children have a diagnosed anxiety disorder.
  • 21% of teens in the United States reported being bullied on school property 10.4% of teens reported being hurt by someone they were dating 17% of students had seriously considered suicide (CDC, 2013 Youth Risk Factors)

Social And Emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. (CASEL, 2005). Principals Of  Emotional Intelligence!

When kids develop their EQ, they have increased academic achievement, better emotional well-being, stronger relationships and improved quality of live.

EQ can be strengthened with practice and coaching! Thats Where My Services Come In!
