Parent and Family Resources

Build children's social and emotional learning with Raising Caring Kids, a free resource for parents and caregivers of 1st-5th graders. Raising Caring Kids, a project from the University of Wisconsin – Extension’s Institute of Human Development and Relationships and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides articles and short videos for parents to help their children explore social and emotional skills.


Asking children questions can help them solve problems.


Talking with children can prepare them to think and act in difficult situations. 

The Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) partnered with social and emotional learning expert, Jennifer Miller, to create a list of resources that can assist parents in learning more about SEL in schools and in their own parenting practices. All of these resources can be accessed at no cost. These resources include:
