Flexibility and compassionate behavior in academic and social situations are key skills for kids. Many schools and parents do not yet have strategies to address these needs. In this webinar, we present a model for teaching kids how to act in ways that get their needs met with kindness to others. We present individual and group activities that are fun, challenging, and that have been demonstrated in well-designed studies to result in improved flexibility around rules and more sensitive behavior toward others.
