"Helping Children Cope is a great experience for any child. The tools that are learned can be used in many different areas of life. I use The Moon Balloon book to help students who are struggling with school, friends, and behavior. The outlet that the children learn to use through the program can enhance their life on many levels and will be something they can go back to for years to come...."
