How to Talk with Your School to Support Your Child’s Success


Healthy social emotional skills (SES) for gifted teens are learned and reinforced when schools and families work together consistently and with good communication. Social emotional skills help kids learn to: manage feelings, develop an awareness of others, make good decisions, and form healthy relationships

After this class you will be able to:

  • Ask school staff about social emotional programs or learning more skills, or start a conversation about adding social emotional learning activities at your teens’ school
  • Talk about feelings and manage conflict at home with your teens to practice your own social emotional skills and model them for teens
  • Model social emotional skills with your teens by listening to teens without judgment, giving them choices, and encourage healthy conflict resolution.
