Hello Eiji,

We're off to the Clubhouse today for
a Pancake breakfast with the neighbours.
Beautifully sunny today too.

Doug :-)

Teachers/Parents - Here is a list of
the "life skills" recommended by
Unicef [United Nations Children's Fund]


   Which skills are life skills?

There is no definitive list of life skills.
The list below includes the psychosocial
and interpersonal skills generally
considered important.
The choice of, and emphasis on, different
skills will vary according to the topic and
local conditions (e.g., decision-making may
feature strongly in HIV/AIDS prevention
whereas conflict management may be more
prominent in a peace education program).
Though the list suggests these categories
are distinct from each other, many skills are
used simultaneously in practice.

For example, decision-making often involves
critical thinking ("what are my options?") and
values clarification ("what is important to me?").
Ultimately, the interplay between the skills is
what produces powerful behavioural outcomes,
especially where this approach is supported by
other strategies such as media, policies and
health services.
