When student's self-confidence and motivation grow, they take on more challenging aspects in life. They prove to themselves that they can handle these moments, and they are able to resolve many of the discrepancies they have known. They know that if they do run into fear, that we, their guardians and community, will support them. This builds a positive outlook for healing, and when our students are presented with further growth opportunities, they are more likely to walk through their fear, rather than succumbing to self-sabbotage.
