Back to School- Kids are bringing more than books to school. Helping kids with emotions helps them succeed.
Kids and teens today are dealing with some heavy stuff -- cyber-bullying, body shaming, community violence, abuse, neglect, unstable home lives, drug exposure, sexual orientation, immigration issues and more.
All too often kids who misbehave aren’t given a great deal of attention until they get into trouble at school. Getting in trouble at school usually means disciplinary measures like time-out, detention, suspension, expulsion, or even arrest.
Oftentimes, children are almost always left feeling that they are labeled as a “bad kid” and end up being excluded from their peers in the process.
Some children may not have the tools that they need to effectively handle emotions like fear, sadness, and anger, which are often at the root of misbehavior.
Yet, before behavior problems surface, there are emotions that kids are unable to deal with. These emotions come about sometimes from the environment and situations that kids and teens are exposed to.
This toolkit works to increase emotional intelligence and self-regulation through materials for parents, school personnel, and young people.
