Assertiveness

Source: Committee for Children

Assertiveness can help children thrive academically, socially, and personally. Bridgid Normand, a senior program developer at Committee for Children, tells us in her February, 2010 blog that this it is important academically because many students will often not speak up when they don’t understand something.
