Chattahoochee Counseling Connection

February 10, 2021

The purpose of Chattahoochee Counseling Connection newsletter is to highlight social emotional learning practices for students, teachers, and parents. In this week's issue, we are shining our spotlight on the five love languages of children, a read-aloud for kids of all ages, and a few counselor favorites. What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to learn more about how to love yourself and others best?!

What the world needs now is love

What does a child need in order to be emotionally healthy?

In short, to know that they are loved.

Without this, children do not feel safe and secure.

Last year, Chattahoochee ES Student Support Counselor Kelly Byrd presented at a PTA meeting about the five love languages of children. Check out the PowerPoint presentation below.

If you would rather watch a video, we've included one of those too!
