In a workshop at a shelter for families escaping domestic violence, we practiced how to set boundaries in a calm and respectful way instead of getting angry and yelling. Ten-year-old “Jeremy” told us thoughtfully, “I think this will help me to keep my friends.” Then he talked honestly about how he kept losing friends when his only response to a problem was anger.
The cycle of violence that so many people experience can only be broken when children and adults learn about ALL the tools they can use to deal with problems.
Please make a year-end donation in any amount so we can provide far more services to vulnerable families in need! All gifts through December 31 will be doubled by our Leadership Circle.
