Self Esteem Builders
What is Self Esteem Builders?
My daughter was born with several medical problems. Her life hasn’t always been an easy journey. Because of this, and my social work background, I developed Self Esteem Builders, programs that offer learning tools, support and care, inspired by working with dedicated professionals who made a difference in my daughter’s life.
Favorite thing about Schwenksville:
We live in a fairly rural area, where pockets of farmland and open space still exist.
Go-to family vacation activity:
Camping — exploring nature at its best.
Kids’ summertime boredom remedy:
We keep active outdoors swimming, hiking and biking. We also volunteer in the community. This summer I hope to volunteer at nursing homes, along with the SPCA and local food bank.
Low self-esteem buster:
Provide love, support, encouragement and always maintain open communication. Line kids up with activities that will help in increasing their self-esteem. I recommend Girl Scouts, drama clubs and support groups.
Something to pass down to your kids:
Lots of laughter and finding humor in everything.
