SEL teaches skills such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Practicing these skills help children and teens improve their emotional regulation, problem-solving abilities, and decision-making skills. SEL also helps children and teens develop positive relationships with peers and adults, improving their social skills and reducing the likelihood of behavioral problems. SEL often leads to greater academic success, as it promotes positive attitudes towards learning, enhances motivation and engagement, and improves academic performance. Research has shown that Emotional Intelligence is a greater predictor of life success over IQ.
