We use wellness education to empower children to learn to make good decisions. Wellness education lessons will be age appropriate and will include sessions on effective communication, managing emotions, building self-esteem, appropriate conflict resolution techniques, ethical behavior and social etiquette, decision making about drugs, alcohol and tobacco and any other skills and topics that will effectively engender well-being, self-reliance and self-respect.
Additional lessons in interview-taking techniques, resume-building skills, workplace behavior and industry will be offered for older children nearing work age.
Sample lesson topics are outlined below:
Expressing feelings, managing stress, self-control, goal setting, learning from mistakes, respecting differences, bullying, proper hygiene, making friends, relationships, character building, importance of being polite, making healthy food choices, tobacco/alcohol/other drugs, saying ‘no’ to drugs, stranger danger.
