The Phone is Devouring My Family

I was 3 years old and living life pretty close to the floor when I discovered a mysterious cord.

Helping Kids Deal With ANGER.

Children today seem to have the weight of the world on their shoulders, or at least they seem to think they do. It’s not uncommon to walk down the street and see them dressed in black clothing from head to toe, hear them voicing their frustrations loudly to whomever will listen, or simply see them scowl at the world.

Of course there are students who will persist as hard as they can but suffer for it with headaches, stomachaches, anxiety or fatigue.
