New Year! New you! Amazing!

I used this with my 8 year old triplets And 12 year old. They all loved it so much that we bought a frame for each and hung them under this year's school pictures. The location is in a central place of our home that they pass probably hundreds of times a day. I often find one or more stopped and reading what they wrote and commenting on how they are doing. I tell everyone about your website and tools. I even told my daughters psychologist today. Amazing!! Can't tell you how quickly it makes a difference. Thank you!

New Year Kit Review

This is a lovely pack. I completed the pack with my 2 daughters (aged 13 and 10). It made them consider others and the environment. It was also interesting to see what is important to them in the coming year, I learnt a lot from their responses. Really lovely exercise to do with your children.
