Running a marathon is physically and mentally challenging. It can be a real struggle, you have self doubt, you get injuries and wonder if you can really do this, you feel like giving up and have more bad days than good. It's hard to keep going.
The kids I work with have these feelings all day, every day, for tasks we take for granted like getting up or getting dressed. Every day creates more challenges, they have much more concentrated feelings of self loathing, failure, low self esteem and sometimes suicidal thoughts. They don't think they are worth love or praise or hugs or joy. No-one has ever shown them any of these emotions.
We have an amazing group of staff who do an amazing job with the kids. We try to create positive and loving attachments through play and fantastic learning experiences. We hope to repair the damage and create an environment for the kids to heal, grow and learn.
Please help us to help the kids.
