Hi MP Families and Students,

This week and next we will be focusing our SEL messages on kindness. We often teach kids about the importance of being kind to others, but not as much about how to be kind to ourselves. Teaching self-acceptance, positive self-talk, and self-compassion all help to build resilience and self-esteem.

Here are a few resources for teaching your kids about self-compassion:

Listening with My Heart: A Story of Kindness and Self-Compassion - A read-aloud story about the importance of being friends to ourselves.

Visiting Friends - A read-aloud story that teaches emotional literacy by encouraging children to explore and accept their emotions.

To deepen the conversation, ask your child:

 - What have you heard others say or do when something doesn’t go the way they’d like? (Losing a game, answering a question wrong, etc.)

- What words would you like to hear from a friend if you messed up or are being hard on yourself?

- Imagine a time when something didn’t go well and you felt mad at yourself. How does it feel to use words of self-compassion instead of being hard on yourself? (“I am learning”, “Everybody makes mistakes”, “I did my best”, etc.)

Take care!
