When Problems Come Up/Where to Get Help

When Problems Come Up/Where to Get Help

Rare is the child who does not struggle at some time with problems making or keeping friends, knowing how to manage peer or academic pressures, or how to use media or technology appropriately. Developing social and emotional skills helps children become resilient as they face the challenges of living in an increasingly complex world. The Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) programming in District 181 is designed to help children as they encounter problems such as bullying, risk-taking behaviors, stress and anxiety. If you have concerns about your child, please contact your child’s classroom teacher and/or the school’s social worker. The following links can provide families with further resources.
