Day 5 of the #MindfulKidsPeaceSummit is here! The theme today is Social Emotional Learning, Interacting with Others, and Positive Psychology: More Mindfulness and how Teachers and Parents Can Help.

I got to speak with Heather Schwartz today, from the Collaborative for Academic Social Emotional Learning (CASEL), which is like the #1 organization in the country for SEL in the country. We talking about the correct definition of SEL and how teens have to use their voice to get these programs into schools so that we can learn how to cope with stress and emotions and how to interact with others. All of this helps us in the real world when we get out of school.
“SEL is how we learn to get along with people who are different from us, navigate stress, collaborate with others, understand our own emotions, the environments in which we do these things, & learning experiences that connect the head & the heart.”
