Build parent support and involvement
Helping parents get involved in the PATHS® Program is a great way to bring social and emotional learning home. When asked, 81% of parents think SEL is important in school! PATHS® provides parent support and reinforcement of PATHS® concepts at home ensures that children fully absorb the skills acquired through classroom sessions. Many lessons provide at-home activities (available in English and Spanish) and other send-home materials.
