Teamwork

Teamwork is when a group of people work together to accomplish a common goal. Teamwork skills are needed in order to be successful in all aspects of our lives. In order to excel at teamwork, we must get along well with others, value other people’s strengths, confidently share our ideas, and listen well to others. When we are a positive member of a team, we know that “two heads are better than one” and that we can accomplish more together than we can alone.

Emotional Regulation

Emotional Regulation is the way we handle big feelings like anger, disappointment and anxiety. Emotional Regulation (sometimes called self-regulation) is the ability to identify your feelings, and express them in a healthy and appropriate way. Emotional regulation does not mean getting rid of feelings, but rather being aware of them. Once we are aware of our emotions, we can take control in the way we express them. Below you will find resources you can use at home to better understand emotional regulation, and help teach this important skill to your child.
