Spread this message:

Emotional literacy is an essential skill - all children need to learn to recognize feelings and talk about them in a healthy way. Children who don't learn these skills have trouble solving problems, they get in fights, and they act out their feelings in dangerous ways. Children who learn these skills are able to manage their feelings better, understand themselves and others, and find more happiness and peace. Best of all, kids can easily learn these skills in school - and it even helps with academic performance.

If you agree that children should learn emotional literacy skills, come sign the pledge at www.feel.org - we're sending a strong message in support of emotional literacy education by gathering one million signatures. Please add your voice!
