What It's About

As educators, we have the power to shape the social behavior and emotional intelligence of young children. Emotional intelligence, a trait that can be more important to social success and individual happiness than IQ, can be nurtured in children through various teaching techniques.

The BeCool program teaches children impulse control, empathy, and self-awareness, promoting self-control and interrupting impulsive behavior.

It is based on Assertion Training, which helps children learn how to be assertive, recognize negative behavior, and model positive conflict resolution. This program uses unique teaching icons to symbolize three types of responses that children may show when reacting to conflict: aggressive/HOT, passive/COLD, and assertive/COOL.

Every time a particular response is illustrated, it is paired with the respective icon that symbolizes that response. By using these icons and videos to model various behaviors, children can learn how to be in control of their emotions and approach conflict in a constructive manner.

The BeCool series is designed to be age-appropriate, with each level having its own individual modules complete with a minimum of three DVDs and a comprehensive teacher’s guide. The modules cover various aspects of problem areas that children may encounter and teach skills that can help them become more self-aware.

Using this program, educators can help children develop better impulse control, empathy, and other emotional intelligence traits that are necessary for success in life.
