“We believe that it's easier to build strong children than repair broken adults.” Fredrick Douglas.
Take a look at our world, we all see what's happening. it's impossible to miss. we are losing our human connectedness. We see social unrest and political upheaval environmental disasters, a hearting planet, and heartbreaking global conflict and destruction. These growing threats can cause a roller coaster of human emotions. It feels like we've all been through too much, leaving us restless, angry, and sad.
Now look at our kids, we see them becoming anxious and confused. They need our help now while they're young but how can we encourage them to develop resilience and hope? teach them to understand and manage their feelings and emotions? give them the tools to become critical thinkers and compassionate global citizens? Equip them with the social emotional and spiritual life skills that will serve their mental well-being now and for the rest of their lives.
