Student Life Skills
The Student Life Skills Online Program works as a stand alone Social Emotional Learning program or as an excellent addition to your current SEL program to teach life skills.
Student Life Skills is the only SEL program to emphasize and directly connect families and schools by working on the exact same skill and using the same language. Students benefit with this collaboration by receiving more practice, support, and learning to generalize these skills in all areas of life.

In Student Life Skills, Paul Sweetow provides useful tools for parents and teachers to help children learn skills for coping with their feelings in different life situations involving school, family and friends.

Stan McCracken, Ph.D.
Lecturer-Retired, University of Chicago, Vietnam Veteran—US Army
As a veteran and clinician working with the military, I understand that the relationship with our children are critically important for the emotional wellness of both the child and the parent. Student Life Skills provides actionable tools and strategies for parents to help their children in areas of: increasing happiness, reducing stress and anger, building grit and resilience, succeeding in school, and enhancing relationships with family and friends. I highly recommend Student Life Skills to all military parents.
Chicagoland Teacher for 35 years
I am a retired teacher with 35 years experience, and am excited to recommend Student Life Skills. My students absorbed the lessons quickly, preparation time was minimal, and parents felt connected and supportive. Mostly, I noticed my students' social and emotional lives improve.
Teacher for 32 years
I taught young children for 32 years and implemented Pauls Sweetow’s Student Life Skills Program.I taught one skill per week and the children were engaged in learning to better understand themselves and their emotions. We assume that young children have the necessary tools to interact with peers in a positive way and make responsible decisions. I observed the children learning a common language, setting goals and learning how to resolve conflict in a positive way. The parents were able to integrate the learning practices at home to help the children strengthen their social and emotional skills. I utilized many different programs over my tenure as a teacher but Paul Sweetow's Student Life Skills Program helps children develop a tool kit they can utilize to be successful learners and friends.
