Tool Kits for Kids participated in the 2009 ACA Tri-State Camp Conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey on March 17, 2009. Company founders Joel Haber, Ph.D., Suzanne Reiffel, Ph.D., and Erica Ross, Ph.D. presented The Tool Kit Experience – Building Confidence and Self-Esteem in Campers.
Building a child’s confidence and improving self-esteem is one of the key goals of any camp experience. Many campers can benefit from the specific skill building activities in Tool Kits. The education session demonstrated how easy it is to teach elementary and middle school campers the tools they can use this summer and take with them for a lifetime.
These are volatile times for families – and when parents worry, children worry. Parents worry about financial problems, health care, job security, and their family’s future. These worries trickle down to children who can sense that something is wrong at home.
Children have different anxieties than parents – they may worry about friends, grades, or bad things that could happen to them or their family. During stressful times, worries are magnified, and new worries develop.
Parents are always looking for the right words and ways to help their children worry less and become more confident. Tool Kits for Kids™ can be the right solution for families.
