Teach Social Health to School Children

We would like to see anger management, coping mechanisms and conflict resolution skills taught at age appropriate levels to American school children at approximately two year intervals throughout their education, from kindergarten right on through high school.

Specifically, we want kids taught how to manage feelings when they are upset so that they can learn and practice nonviolent, constructive ways of expression or release without harming themselves or anyone around them.

We also would like kids to learn age-appropriate skills that they can apply in their relationships with other people, so that they can diffuse peer pressure, bullying, threats of violence, and other problems they may face without resorting to dangerous behaviors or allowing anyone else to mistreat them.   

Let's make our visions for a safer America a reality by taking action to raise safe people!

Thanks in advance for your support!

      This would be much more applicable and beneficial than the majority of subjects taught in schools, and as I understand it, most schools don't have classes on it at all.
