What Do Kids Have to Say?

 What would you tell a friend about Healing Hearts?

  • It helps you with your situation.
  • It’s awesome!
  • On your worst day, you can look forward to Healing Hearts. It gives you a bit of light.
  • Things kept deep inside can come up.
  • Even if you are having a bad day, you feel better.

What do you think about meeting in a group with kids who have a variety of situations going on; some kids have similar issues and some with different?

  • It is nice to know that you’re not going through situations alone.
  • Hearing others tell about their situations gives you a perspective on your own situations.
  • It is better to have all kinds of issues together than all the same issues because you focus on other people’s issues and it puts my issues in perspective.
