Parenting Future Leaders with Social Emotional Learning

How social emotional learning cultivates strong relationships during turbulent times.

Session Description:

Dr. Nelly summarizes Peace Learning as The Five C’s. Just as we have our daily vitamins to supplement our physical health The Five C’s are every bit as potent for the health of our mind, emotions and relationships.

The Five C’s are Compassion, Communication, Cooperation, Culture, and Conservation.

Integrating the Five C’s into the daily diet of what we as families experience, creates the new possibility that parents can teach children compassionate ways to manage conflict and to self-regulate. Listening to children’s feelings of anger, fear, and frustration at events in the home, the neighborhood, and the larger society, will benefit the whole world.
