Strengthening & Empowering

Everyday, when you enter the classroom, you have no way of knowing  what that day will hold. In every classroom there is at least one student who cannot sit still in their seats, is caught daydreaming or the anxiety of a test causes a regular visit to the nurses office. Many of these issues can be resolved by equipping your students with specific skills. By teaching them ways to connect with their peers and others outside of the classroom, their level of social anxiety will decrease and many issues that cannot be addressed as a mental health issue are resolved. Without addressing these social anxieties and helping our students form better relationships, their behavior will continue to be destructive and leave room for continuous class absence and daily behavioral struggles.

While no two children are exactly alike, if we trace the “symptoms” breadcrumbs backwards, we can find underlying issues fall generally under three main categories: Social, Emotional, and Educational.

Classic symptoms may show up as:

  • Your student won’t go outside for recess due to social anxiety.
  • Your student says negative things about himself/herself during class.
  • Your student is lying or stealing.
  • Your student’s grades are slipping and it does not seem to be an academic issue.
  • Your student has no self-esteem or self-confidence and it’s getting worse.
  • Your student never says “I can”, and only says “I can’t.”
  • Your student is either bullied or is the bully.
  • Your student is afraid of all adult males or all adult females.
  • Your student suddenly craves your attention when someone else is present.

Regardless of what your student is going through, there is hope. You are not alone.
