The Life Skills Training team is giving students some complimentary advice to help them with their peers. 
Nikki Trout and Diane Mouser speak to third grade students in the fall and fourth graders in the spring about good decision making and consequences, self-esteem, dealing with stress, the dangers of tobacco, drugs and alcohol and other valuable behaviors.
In this first of five fall sessions, the duo focused on positive self-esteem. They formed a "compliment line" and encouraged students to think of character, not clothing, compliments to offer each other. 
"I challenge you to give three compliments a day to three different people. I think you'll find you make a new friend and help everyone feel more confident," said Nikki Trout. 
The “Life Skills Training” program is brought to Indian Lake Schools annually through Trout’s company Nitro Networks. It is funded by a special grant.
