Review for Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement , Newtown, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Four years ago I heard Scarlett being interviewed on TV, she was talking with Brett Baier. Scarlet was talking about the murder of her son Jesse, but also how she knew that if Adam his killer, had had the Choose love program in his life he would have never chose to kill anyone. Her strength had me in tears. I needed to know more. I researched everything, read all the programs. I was so excited I shared it with everyone I knew. I did not know why this was not in every school. To me this was a no brainer. I shared my information with my friend and school teacher Lori Biagini who took the information, looked into it, and started teaching it in her Elementary Pre K class. Fast forward and the whole school is on board. Several other schools in our district are also using Choose Love. I am hoping The Cornwall Schools ( my Grandsons schools) will be following soon. The Choose Love Movement is the most all encompassing SEL program in existence and it is Free for schools. Our children need this desperately, but so do we, the parents, Grandparents and the Community.
A huge side note of how this program helped me personally. I gained strength from reading, talking about and practicing Choose love. I was going through a traumatic experience four years ago that almost ruined me but, I Chose to forgive because of this program and what I learned. That started my healing process and opened up my heart again.
The Choose Love program is for Pre K through 12th grade but it will positively effect every child and adult that is involved of that I have no doubt.
