• WHY DO KIDS NEED SCHOOL COUNSELING?

     

    • Children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.
    • Children who understand their feelings are better able to control their behavior.
    • We know that stress can affect focus and learning, but its impact can be reduced with proven self-regulation strategies.
    • Schools, parents, and communities that communicate and collaborate provide the most effective support to children.
    • Attitudes formed during elementary school shape future attitudes towards learning, self, and society.
