“At first everything in my head was so negative. Slowly, talking things through, I learned a lot of great things about myself, and believe it or not, even about my parents.”
Is your son negative about himself and others? Does he spend a lot of time alone?
At the UCanachieve Learning Alternatives Program, we want each child to shine. We encourage and enable each teenager to develop a healthy sense of self and remove any negativity that is bringing them down. One of the guiding principles is to help our children learn the importance of loving yourself and others.
Loving yourself and others
At UCanachieve, we create a safe and supportive environment for your teenager or young adult to grow and develop into their true self. Self-love is essential to developing a positive outlook on life in general and encourages the motivation to achieve and succeed. Self-love is also the first step in helping your child learn to truly connect with others, as positive self-esteem leads to the willingness to build on strengths and overcome challenges.
Once a student can view himself in a positive light, they can start to see others around them positively as well.
At the UCanachieve we help each student learn to recognize and appreciate the community around them, helping them develop personal relationships with other students, with their families, and with their community.
