Today I’m Chatty... Tomorrow I’m in my Feelings

Let’s explore how to teach children to calm down when frustrated or upset as we dive into the development of social and emotional skills. Learn how these skills help us manage emotions, build relationships, and understand to respect others feelings. Activities and resources will be provided to help children and families support social and emotional development.
