It's not enough to simply fill students' brains with facts. A successful education demands that their character be developed as well. That's where social and emotional learning comes in. SEL is the process of helping students develop the skills to manage their emotions, resolve conflict nonviolently, and make responsible decisions.
Although family, community, and society are significant factors in fostering emotional intelligence and character development, educators must create a safe, supportive learning environment and integrate SEL into the curriculum.

I'm not a teacher just a loving parent who knows of bullying in our schools! I loved your videos and your positive reconstruction! This would make a huge difference in our school I think if it was an option. I plan to tell everyone I know about this app if they have a child or if they are affiliated with a school in any way! So thanks again for your positive teaching!
