Anchoring for H.O.P.E Foundation Inc. will strive to empower and equip the kids in our community with the fundamental knowledge, coping skills, and training required for our their success and sustainability.

Curriculum Overview:  Should we use word children instead of kids?

We aren’t born with the ability to cope with our emotions. We have to be taught.  And many of us weren’t taught healthy strategies. Maybe, we were yelled at or sent to our rooms. Maybe, we were told to calm down and stop crying.  Either way, some of our children’s feelings weren’t discussed in a positive light—if ever. Maybe, we watched our parents internalize their stress, shut down, or lash out. And, as a result, we froze or freaked out when we started feeling stressed or anxious. We simply didn’t know what to do with these emotions. Maybe, we still don’t. Maybe, we still struggle.  Which is why it gets tricky when we need to help our own kids navigate their different emotions and various stressors.

Sometimes we forget that kids deal with real situations, just like adults. They, too, deal with worries about failing, being liked by their peers,  and the health of their families. They, too, get frustrated with themselves. They, too, get anxious about being seen differently, rejection, starting a new school year, meeting new people, working on new projects, and assignments. They, too, go blank during important moments (like presentations or exams). They, too, have disagreements with friends. Sometimes they, too, worry about “adult” problems like finances.  And it’s vital that we teach them the coping skills to navigate these situations and challenges well so that they do not become a problem to our society.

When we talk about feelings with our kids (in a compassionate, non-judgmental way), we empower them. When we teach them different skills and strategies to cope, we equip them. with valuable tools to navigate real challenges—tools they’ll take into adolescence and adulthood. We teach them to honor and value themselves. And that is a priceless educational service to our families and communities.



GROW:  Elementary

Anchoring for H.O.P.E Foundation Inc. will strive to grow strong learners for tomorrow’s leaders by Anchoring Our Kids through Caring & Sustaining Relationships through the following educational offerings:

Engage in Positive Self-talk. How we talk to ourselves affects everything: It creates our lens for the world. So if we’re engaging in negative self-talk, we’re going to have a negative outlook on life, and on our abilities to cope with life. We will help our kids rethink their thinking to help them understand that negative thoughts are not the truth or their reality, and that they have the power to change them to something supportive.

Moving with H.O.P.E. Participating in physical activities is especially important when our children start getting restless, antsy or irritable. Jumping rope, doing jumping jacks, taking a walk, running in place, swimming, stretching, skipping, dancing, and taking a class (e.g., martial arts, gymnastics, rock climbing) are some of the ways that Anchoring for H.O.P.E. will engage our kids in meaningful ways.

Anchoring your Feelings with H.O.P.E. Healthy coping starts with being able to accurately identify our feelings. It starts with connecting and listening to ourselves. kids can jot down, draw, or illustrate one feeling on a separate page of their journal that Anchoring for H.O.P.E. will provide for our kids. These feelings could be expressed as happy, frustrated, worried, sad, mad, scared. This will help our children gain a deeper understanding of what stresses them out and pinpoint any patterns to their stress (ex. gets stressed on Sundays). The key is to answer these questions on a piece of paper: “What stressed me out? What happened before? When did it happen? Where was I? What happened after?”
