Abstract
PeopleSmart-1 teaching basic friendship skills, is the first video program to focus on the specific skills needed to make a "real" friend. Students will learn the 10 best ways to meet people, how to distinguish between an acquaintance and a real friend, and what to do to maintain a good relationship.
PeopleSmart-2 helps students learn the difference between trust and gullibility and that "niceness" does not always mean "goodness." This program focuses on teaching students who and when to trust, and how to recognize and deal with people who don't care about their best interests.
Notes
Although originally designed for students with mild to moderate learning, emotional and cognitive disabilities, LifeSmart Curriculum series is appropropriate for any population in need of a comprehensive review of basic life skills.

Does he just follow the crowd? Are you concerned about his friends? Does she complain that she’ s unpopular or that nobody likes her? Are you at a loss for how to help your child handle those play dates, sleepovers, being shy, too sensitive, too competitive, or having a bad reputation? This teaches 25 essential friendship-building skills kids need to find, make, and keep friends, as well as survive that social pressure from peers.
