Most role models who are also public figures, have managed to
successfully provide a good example to the public and to our youth.
However, it is the many who do not that seem to make the deepest
impression. Imagine the bafflement of today's youth as they watch
many public figures, (politicians, athletes, entertainers, etc.),
who have attained all that the world says one can attain, only
to watch those adults throw it all away due to a foolish choice
Meaning, Inc., a nonprofit organization based in Prince George's
County, Maryland offers a solution to this dilemma through a newly
developed program entitled "Feelings Come & Go"
One of the
objectives of this program is to take its young participants to
the root of the problem, by teaching how to develop the control
and ability to think past ones feelings in order to make choices
and decisions that can benefit both their lives, and others.
The program offers practical solutions that can help its participants
to avoid repeating the blunders of so many of their role models,
thus overcoming the common excuse, or justification "well
if they did it..."
The program's suggested age range for participants is ten (10)
years and older. To benefit parents and others, there is also
an adult version of "Feelings Come and Go" is now available
to schools, and to the general public.
