Present day public schools focus intensely on academic success. Social-emotional development is frequently given only incidental attention. If families are not prepared to take up the slack, students’ emotional growth may be impeded, resulting in diminished social skills, motivation, and ability to cope with stress.

Dr. Liane Brouillette gives parents effective strategies that can help their children to build a strong foundation in six key areas:

  • Developing confidence
  • Building human connections and a feeling of belonging
  • Learning from consequences
  • Nurturing emotional intelligence
  • Acquiring a sense of agency
  • Making wise decisions
