What’s Your Child’s Superpower?
What’s your parent superpower?
Confident Parents, Confident Kids is engaging in a new video campaign in support of a focus on the well-being and school and life success of children and we invite you to join us!
Over the past year, we have been inspired by the many positive, “good news” stories from parents, educators, students, and community leaders on social and emotional learning (SEL) whether it takes place through parenting in family life, schools or communities. At the core of these stories is a focus on the many – and unique – strengths that a focus on children’s social and emotional skills (and parents and educators too!) can nurture and build — or what we are calling “SEL superpowers.” Building on that theme, we are launching a social media campaign focused on sharing real stories of real people around the country who care about social and emotional learning. We think your story is powerful to share!
We invite you to help us generate more inspiration and joy for social and emotional learning by recording a short, selfiie-style video talking about your SEL “superpower” (strength) and what it means to you. This shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes of your time.
- Step 1: If you want to learn more about what to do: review our guide on video recording best practices, including prompts for your recording. Be sure to record with your phone or device in a vertical position.
- Step 2: Once you record your video, complete the video release form.
- Step 3: Share your video and release form to our Dropbox link.
Please submit the video by Friday, March 4th.We will be launching the campaign on social media during the week of March 6-10, in celebration of International SEL Day on March 10th. Last year, thousands of parents and educators participated. To learn more, check out the site on SEL Day.
We are participating in this campaign as a member of the Leading with SEL coalition, an alliance of 25 organizations and associations that help broaden awareness of the benefits of supporting the social, emotional, and academic development of all children.
Thank you for being a champion for all of our children!
