Social Emotional Wellness is comprised of five equally important components: self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, relationship skills, and social awareness. At Oaks Christian, we use the BLESSED acronym to offer a picture of the various aspects of our life that contribute to comprehensive wellness and thriving. 

Social Emotional Wellness is the process through which children and adults learn to navigate the ebbs and flows of life by learning to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.
