Social and Emotional Skills

Everyone has an array of thoughts, feelings and relationships with others. As children grow up, these thoughts, feelings and relationships develop and mature. These qualities will have a profound impact on our lives-especially as young people transition into independent life at college or adulthood in general. These developing qualities called “social and emotional skills,” include things like: identifying our emotions, knowing our values, self-esteem, resilience and grit and relating to others. In this section we will review an approach to better understand these important issues for your kids.
