Dr. Jean on the importance of social Connections and relationships


(Arti Freeman) #1

What do social connections and sense of belonging have to do with children’s well being? In these videos, Dr. Jean explains how connections and strong relationships inside and outside the classroom are key to children and youth thriving!

In the second video Dr. Jean expounds on where and how social connections and relationships are formed in community, such as hockey groups, and what is needed to make a child feel accepted.

We would love to hear from you! Please let us know of your programs or programs you know off that support the connections of children and youth to each other and to caring adults.
