Social and emotional learning (SEL) requires students to develop critical skills that will help them thrive in any environment and build healthy relationships. With a focus on the SEL concept of self-management, this book introduces students to impulse control and self-regulation, two skills that align with the CASEL critical competencies. Told through an age-appropriate lens of support and encouragement, this guide helps students understand impulse control and why it is an important skill. It also provides various strategies they can use to practice impulse control in real-life situations. Students are encouraged to think first on their way to building advanced social and emotional skills.
