When I left the classroom in 2017, I felt depleted, I felt guilty, I felt like I was turning a blind eye to a huge problem in the public education world - and that was student behavior.
I've always said my mission behind this series has been for kids, for parents, for teachers, and for good. And now more than ever, this year I've been getting more clear on our goal and how we can best serve those that mean the most to us.
Our books, our resources, and now our podcast all exist to lend tools to parents and educators facing challenging situations and unstable emotions with their kiddos on the daily.
This is our first guide just for parents (working on a follow up one specific for educators - although key elements are all the same) - and I was so happy to introduce it last weekend at the Great Mama's Mindset Conference here in Katy, TX! It opened up conversations with mamas in the room, sharing our struggles, and hearing positive feedback was all the more inspirational to me that we're headed in the right direction.
Parents are getting involved in having social and emotional support conversations at homes.
Educators are leading the force that is SEL in the classroom.
SEL books & resources are sparking these hard conversations - the easy way.
So, if you're new to SEL, wondering what it's all about, and looking for book recommendations to go along with challenging topics - download our FREE PDF + links to all of the books mentioned are on our podcast page here!
