Kids' Podcasts for Social-Emotional Learning

Just like with math and vocabulary, kids need to learn the necessary skills to understand their emotions and relate to others in order to be successful both in school and in life. In classroom settings, these skills are often referred to as social and emotional learning (SEL). Communication, self-awareness, empathy, problem-solving, and self-control are all skills that typically fall under SEL. Your kids may be learning these skills in class, but it doesn't hurt to give them a little extra support at home! Share these podcasts with kids, tweens, and teens to help them develop essential skills that will boost their confidence, develop their identity, and build strong relationships. To reinforce these skills, try our other suggestions for encouraging kids to talk about their feelings and have important conversations.
