Social & Life Skills

DateSmart

DateSmart®

Teach students social skills & to set dating boundaries, say no, remain abstinent, use clear communication and avoid sexual harassment

I am the school nurse and I use DateSmart for High school family life education. It meets abstinence criteria and is concrete enough for students to relate to and apply. They find it entertaining as well.

What is the DateSmart?

In DateSmart, students discover the most important behaviors related to dating in this age of sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy.Students are challenged to make wise choices in potentially difficult and/or awkward situations. They are asked to consider and question their own dating standards, as well as to examine their values about love and sex. DateSmart gives students much-needed tools to help them make safe and healthy decisions for themselves as well as others.

Your students will also learn the NotSmart and DateSmart ways to set boundaries, remain abstinent, say no and avoid the consequences of sexual harassment.

My students were glued to the screen. Love Stanfield’s humor. This is the way to teach social skills.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
