Children who had a very joyfull time especially in the activities of "I'm regulating my breath" and "I am my own hero"; discovered that there are many things they can do when they are afraid, sad, or angry.
In the activity "I'm Going to the Future"; Children who shared their dreams and goals for the future gained awareness that not losing the joy and hope of life makes people strong and healthy.
