The challenges that children face today are not new, but, when they are not addressed, can leave emotional scars that hinder a young person's true potential. Some of these include peer assault, cyber-bullying, thoughts of suicide, harassment, lack of self-esteem, rejection, anger, rage, fear of failure, gangs, and many other potentially life-changing challenges. The H.U.Y.O.E. Non-Violence Guide for Today's Youth addresses these challenges that are faced by most, if not all youth to some degree in school, at home, and in the community. Through its lessons, this guide teaches victory over violence to youth from kindergarten through high school. It is uniquely designed to reach and teach the whole child by addressing violence towards the body, soul, and spirit.
In addition to the non-violence and affective education, every lesson presents academic and cognitive skills that are required for proficiency on all state standardized tests.
H.U.Y.O.E. has specially designed pre- and post-tests that can be used to track the non-violence skills of youth from kindergarten through high school.
Our goal is schools, homes, and communities are safe places for all children and youth. Young people will understand that they must take an active and knowledgeable role in the development of a healthy, non-violent world for all people.
This wonderfully complete and in-depth guide for youth has 212 pages, with full resources for youth, parents, and teachers, designed for daily application, as well as for life-long learning.
