"Healing Children provided our school with an amazing wellness tool, Toxic Thinking 101. Leena and Traci broke down the topic into pieces that all students can understand. They normalized something that is so damaging for many students and offered a way out. Their information has the potential to be a life-changer for many students. I highly recommend them for any project addressing students, wellness, and mental health."
“This class has helped me to understand the underlying problems of a struggling child and has made me want to be more compassionate and patient with the child. I learned that I shouldn’t blame the child for the problems and I needed to be more sensitive to the situations at home. I can now help parents understand their child better."
“I am excited to start the next year with the knowledge I now have."
“I would love to participate in more training classes from these two ladies. They were experts and were willing to share their knowledge with the class."
“I am now not going home in tears, but coming to school feeling confident to take on whatever [the student] may throw at me!"
“The training gave me several tools that I have been able to bring back and share with colleagues. It also gave me better insights to why some children behave they way the do."
“Coming to this training helped to motivate me—refresh or reset my thinking hearing different perspectives and ways to reach these students."
“I really like the comment “don’t take on other individual’s problems, they don’t belong to you."
“I appreciate hearing stories and working with the other teachers to develop strategies to help those students in our school that need emotional support and growth."
“Thank you ladies, for a fun and useful two days. I look back to my notes often."
“The training has helped me learn concepts I feel I can use to restructure my attitude and strategies I can have ready to use with confidence while I work to prevent challenging behaviors and to respond better when problems do happen."
“This class has given me some strategies and ideas to manage these challenging students more effectively and to find JOY in working with them."
“I learned that I shouldn’t blame the child for their problems and I needed to be more sensitive to the situations at home. I can now help parents understand their child better."
“I feel uplifted. I am a GOOD teacher and I can state the truth about kids in a kind way to parents and administrators."
“Thank you!!!! I love your research mindset and care of students and staff."
