When a child steps foot into a classroom, he carries with him the rest of his world. Although school is only one aspect of his life, he enters the room reflecting all dimensions. Children are expected to perform, yet they also have to rely on adults to set them up for success. In order to thrive, every child needs a home that provides a stress-free environment with an emotionally-present, attuned adult who monitors his daily life in a healthy manner.
Unfortunately, most children don't get this. Instead, most children are experiencing trauma. Two-thirds of children to be exact.
