An In Focus Moment
The Best Gift To Give
A Priceless Gift That Lasts a Lifetime

December 15 is an important day in my life. It is the day that my dad passed when I was thirteen years old. My most powerful social emotional learning ( SEL) idea for parents was inspired from the pain of my dad's death.

I share this idea each year because it is powerful, and because I want every child and adolescent to receive this gift at least once in their life time.

This gift requires only 1-2 minutes of a parent's time per day. If you are a teacher and not a parent, please share with any parents.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
