Social Emotional Learning Resources

Social Emotional Learning Resources

One of the most important skills we can foster in young children is the development of positive self-esteem. A sure way to do this is by showing children how to recognize the good feelings that come from within when they accomplish or create something, or how to rely on intrinsic (versus extrinsic) motivation. Intrinsic motivation inevitably leads to healthy self-esteeem.
