Many teachers struggle with disengaged students and bad behavior. Often, it's because kids don't understand their emotions or have strategies for regulating them. This means they can struggle to fit in and connect with their classmates. 

I'm Lis, and I understand these challenges. That’s why I’m passionate about creating resources that empower kids to navigate overwhelming emotions and situations, and to embrace kindness throughout their lives. Read more about me and my why HERE!
