Random Thoughts ...


Willpower is not enough sometimes. 

                    Learning new ways of thinking, believing and behaving are essential.


The power of love and emotional support in healing someone is SO underestimated by doctors and others in this world today. Both are what I needed more than any medication that could ever be made.


If we had better skills, then we would be better able to meet the challenges of life instead of running away from obstacles, denying that they exist or ignoring the problems of life.

Life is difficult and I feel that it is in being prepared for the challenges, which will come to everyone in one way or another, that we are able to grow, overcome the difficulties in life and be mature.

If we do not have the skills to handle our challenges and relate to ourselves and others, then we become afraid and unsure and we run away from our problems.

If we could learn these skills when we are young then we would be able to meet the difficulties in life. It doesn't mean that we wouldn't have troubles, for troubles visit us in life, but we would be able to handle our troubles better. Accidents happen, people die, divorces happen and life goes on but we could grow with the challenges instead of dying in life.


I find it easier to be kind and compassionate since learning better communication and coping skills. While I am not perfect in any way, especially with anger and fear, it is easier for me to be kinder to others with a stronger sense of self-esteem. It was when I felt weak, afraid and helpless inside that I was mean, bitter, angry and unforgiving.



It doesn't take more than four or five seconds to injure a tiny brain seriously, and as many as 1,400 babies die each year [emphasis added] from this devastating form of child abuse.


Between 600,000 and 6 million women are victims of domestic violence each year, and between 100,000 and 6 million men, depending on the type of survey used to obtain the data. ….

Nearly 2.2 million people called a domestic violence crisis or hot line in 2004 to escape crisis situations, seek advice, or assist someone they thought might be victims. ….

The health-related costs of intimate partner violence exceed $5.8 billion each year. Of that amount, nearly $4.1 billion are for direct medical and mental health care services, and nearly $1.8 billion are for the indirect costs of lost productivity or wages. ….

Annually in the United States, 503,485 women are stalked by an intimate partner.


  • Every 2 minutes, someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted
  • There is an average of 207,754 victims (age 12 or older) of sexual assault each year


Emotional life skills such as handling conflict better, as well as anger, could go a long way in helping us improve our emotional health. Perhaps if someone knew how to deal with conflict and anger better then maybe they wouldn't hit their children or their spouse or kill them in a blind rage. Perhaps we would have fewer murders, rapes, domestic violence and other crimes.

Children would be able to stand up to bullies instead of being afraid. Bullies might not have to be bullies and pick on others because they have been abused at home in the same way in some manner.

We treat others as we have been treated and how we treat ourselves.

Children would have better self-esteem and more confidence if they could learn some of these skills earlier in life. This would then make for a healthier, happier society for many reasons.

Maybe marriages would last longer if we knew how to work our our problems in a healthier way. Maybe we would be able to look at our potential partners in a healthier way before we got married by really communicating with each other to see if we really are able to get along. We could have fewer broken homes. Families could stay together.

I'm not sure if silence in the home is an okay thing or that staying together "for the children" is either. I think that a lack of communication with each other about the important things in life and in relationships may do more damage to yourselves and to your children in the long run than separating or divorcing. I'm not sure about this but the anger, resentment and silence don't do us any good either. We don't learn any skills or how to work out problems and conflict. Everyone feels suppressed. Resentment builds and all kinds of other things happen emotionally. Separation or divorce may not be the best answer either but maybe counseling would help everyone.

Maybe children would stop having children and we could all have healthier relationships by focusing more on who people are inside instead of basing our relationships on physical looks and attraction.

People would be healthier physically because they would have better self-esteem. They would naturally want to take care of themselves and be healthy. This would save lots of money in healthcare costs.

We wouldn't eat so much trying to get rid of our problems or to feel safe or for whatever reason we are eating too much. We might not drink so much, if at all. We might not want to use drugs.

We could be connected with ourselves and with our spiritual Father in a bigger, more expanded way. We could be free to be ourselves and to understand that there is more to life than only the physical that can be experienced here and now.

We could have a healthier spiritual life as well.


Try to focus on one thing at a time for at least 15 or 20 minutes a day. It can be anything. It can be playing with your children, washing the dishes, a sport or washing the car. Just focus on one thing at a time. Try not to wash the dishes, talk on the phone and play with your children and everything else all at the same time. The goal is to help you focus on what you are doing so that you can learn to focus on what you are feeling. If you cannot identify what you are feeling and why then things stay confusing as well as this contributes to wanting to run away from problems. If you can get yourself comfortable focusing on what you are feeling and what is happening then it gets easier and easier as time goes by to do so.


When you get to the point where you are uncomfortable with what you are feeling and you want to run----go one more minute...go one more minute each time you feel uncomfortable...just one more minute...and you will find that you are soon able to handle more and more as time goes by.


I understand completely why people want to run away and start over.

I understand completely why people go into a little room in their mind and never want to come out again.

This results from an inability to deal with or make any sense out of what is happening or it is also a response to an overwhelming amount of pain or trauma or something. I'm sure there can be other reasons but these were the ones for me.


What about the drug addict, the alcoholic, the child abuser and the road rager? Might there be some underlying cause for their addiction or rage, such as abuse or shame. They say that we are worthless and self-haters and miserable. How do we know to be different if we were never taught about self-esteem and standing up for our self? We usually act the way that we were brought up. They call us weak-minded when we were never taught to be strong. I’m not trying to provide an excuse for bad behavior. It just seems that it’s okay to have a deficit in the area of physical health but not a deficit of emotional or mental behavior or skills. Someone taught us or we learned the hard way how to manage our finances, work hard, get a job, take care of our kids, pay our bills and other life skills all on the physical level. Wow, that’s great. What about our emotional health? What about teaching our kids a healthier way to get out anger than beating up on a sibling or the kid at school? What about teaching them that it’s not okay to burn somebody with cigarettes or sexually and physically abuse someone? What about teaching healthier ways of dealing with anger and rage and so possibly reduce the instances of rape and murder? What about teaching healthier emotional skills so that drug abuse does not continue to run rampant in this country and ruin the lives of so many? What about not subjecting our kids to violence in cartoons, video games and the media so that violence does not seem to be an act of no consequence? What about teaching everyone that they are special and that life is sacred and not something to be easily disposed of or thrown away!


To continue to medicate problems away will only result in a population that becomes weak, a slave to the medications and to the idea that there is something wrong with them.


Anger held in obviously does a lot of damage in our society. It comes out violently sometimes in murders, rapes, sexual and physical abuse, domestic violence and other ways. This is an unhealthy expression of anger which can no longer be contained. This is one place where hate arises. Fear is another. Hurt is another.

I think that helping people learn healthier ways of expressing and dealing with their feelings would go a long ways in reducing some of the violence. What about you?

I could only find forgiveness by first taking responsibility for everything I had done in my life.

That meant that there could no longer be any blaming anyone else for how my life turned out, no matter even if I had not chosen some of the things that happened. When I took responsibility for everything that I had done and every choice that I had made, then and only then, could I personally find forgiveness with myself, with others and with God. If I would have continued to remain a victim, I would never have found forgiveness and healing in my life.


I think that insurance companies would save a lot more money by investing in a couple of years to help people learn new skills in an outpatient program instead of a lifetime of medications, disability, doctor bills and related medical expenses.


                                                                                                                     Maybe we haven’t given up yet.

I think actually that mental illness might be a reflection of our society. So many people seem to be suffering from depression or other mental illnesses and the problem seems to be getting worse. I think from personal experience that many people are actually very uncomfortable with their feelings and expressing them in a healthy way. I don’t think this comes from not wanting to do better. I think it stems from a lack of skills. I think that a lot of people never learned essential emotional life skills and that is why we have so many experiencing such difficulty today. If we can train our armies to fight a battle physically or our children to live in this world physically, why do we not seem to care that we are not training our children to deal with life emotionally as well? Are emotional life skills such as learning self-esteem, setting boundaries, resolving conflict, confidence, healthy ways of relating to others and our feelings any less worthy than learning how to take care of ourselves physically? Why do people assume that someone should have to be taught how to tie their shoes but not how to deal with conflict, set boundaries or protect their self emotionally? Are we just supposed to learn emotional life skills automatically? Are we worthless or somehow less than normal humans because we didn’t automatically know or develop healthy self-esteem or emotional skills? I believe education can change these self-defeating behaviors. I believe education and awareness are the keys.


It was never any kind of love that led to me being stalked and hurt. It was fear or anger or rage or pain or something, but it was not love that hurt me. I was afraid of love but it was not love that did all the damage.

There are those that call us selfish. Yes, many of us are selfish but that is because nobody ever fed us properly or not enough in this world.

At what point do we all recognize that there are some serious problems with many of us and our emotional and spiritual health in this world. Physically many are not doing so well either and that is a reflection of our emotional and spiritual health as well.

We were never really fed emotionally or spiritually. We are hungry. We are starving. We are thirsty.

Please feed your children and yourselves emotionally and spiritually. Give everyone water to drink.

Then watch life change in this world. Mine did. It changed dramatically for the better and healthier.


NO SPIRIT HERE ---------------- man becomes to some nothing more than flesh with nothing inside that they can see as being bigger than only this physical life. What’s the point in that? Do we not reach for the stars inside of us because something calls us? Do we not crave the ocean because it rises and falls in our own hearts? Do we not love where ocean meets land because that is our very nature or a reflection of the two natures inside of us? Do we not climb mountains to be closer to ourselves and to God?

Must some reduce us to nothing more than lumps of flesh? Surely we are more than that. I feel it. Many feel it. Listen to your own heart and what it is telling you about what is happening.


        Many studies have shown in the last 20 years that murderers and ultraviolent criminals have a startling evidence of brain disease. … 
        Some of the inmates had more than one disorders, and no subject was normal in all spheres. Among the diagnoses were schizophrenia, 
        depression, epilepsy, alcoholism, alcoholic dementia, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, brain injury, dissociative disorders and others. 
        More than 64 % of them appeared to have frontal lobe abnormalities. Fifty percent had brain atrophy and 40 % had EEG abnormalities. 
        Almost 84 % of the subjects had been victims of severe physical and/or sexual abuse. The group of murderers included gang members, 
        rapists, robbers, serial murderers, mass murderers, one subject who killed his infant son, and another who murdered three siblings.

         For a long time now, neuroscientists [have] known that lesions to this part of the brain [frontal area] lead to 
         severe deficits in all these behaviors. [please read the article for more info]


What about energy? What about fear or trauma or abuse that causes damage to these areas? What about the damage that psych meds cause to the frontal area of the brain? What about a lack of love or emotional support and what about the possible “shrinking” of the energy fields of the person if they are shrinking from some kind of energy in their life? What about the energy of emotional or verbal abuse? What kind of energetic damage does physical abuse cause?

We now know that the energy of a bomb going off can cause brain damage. Well, what about others forms of energy such as abusive words or physical threats? What are the long term effects of physical or emotional abuse or emotional neglect on the energetic bodies of people? What about the effects of other kinds of energies on the body, the brain or the energetic fields.

If our bodies are a reflection of what is going on in our energetic fields and illness first becomes apparent in the energetic bodies then our energy bodies have a direct relationship to our physical bodies.


Some information on orgone energy for those who might be interested.

        In the 1930's and 1940's, Dr. Wilhelm Reich was able to detect and measure the existence of etheric energy 
        life energy, chi, etc.), which he called orgone, using a modified geiger counter. What is orgonite?

        Orgone energy was originally observed by Wilhelm Reich, MD, a psychoanalyst in the late 1920s, as a bio-electrical 
        charge whose flow within the body could be visibly seen as waves passing through his clinical patients as they were 
        experiencing intense emotional breakthroughs. (1) Later, in the 1930s, to confirm his visual observations, Reich was 
        able to objectively measure the movements of this energy by using a very sensitive millivolt meter with sensors attached 
        to the body to record subtle bio-electric charge.


                    …What we have been covering is that one of the side effects of “stripping” the victims from feeling emotions
                    is to cripple them from taking moral stands, from seeing love & concern in the world around them, and from 
                    reaching out & forming ties to the outside world.
I believe that this is an excellent article about how the effects of fear, trauma and control, among other factors, can have on a person’s life or a population for that matter. I feel that I didn’t have any more feelings left or that it was okay to have feelings. While most of us have not been abducted or programmed specifically, this article seems to touch on what would happen to people if they are controlled in many ways by fear, trauma and other means to achieve a desired effect. I found some really good information about how to overcome fear as well as a discussion about hope and what it does for a person. I also read about what a lack of hope can do to a person or a society and some other great information. Even if you don’t believe in any kind of conspiracy, I feel that this is an interesting read with some valuable information. Try to take a look at this article and information with an open mind. It comes from some people very serious about what they do. This site prints the information from the following book:

        Yes, they are part of the violence; they contribute to this way of life, and many of the younger men, the ones in their twenties, 
        are still seduced by it. But once they hit 30, most of my students want to find their way out. And one way, temporarily, is prison.

        Prison, my student Robert wrote, was the first place he ever felt safe. If there were any weapons on the inside, he said, he 
        could be pretty sure they wouldn’t be guns. Suddenly, the fear that had dominated and determined the direction of his life, 
        was gone. Free from fear, Robert was free to begin to discover who he was.


          Implement and fund the social policies and programs that will eradicate the causes for their fear, 
        and my students won’t be condemned to find sanctuary behind prison walls simply because they 
        were too young to know that they would never find it in a gun.


        Without freedom from the past, there is no freedom at all, because the mind is never new, fresh, innocent.
J. Krishnamurti

            That is what we do. We carry our burdens all of the time; we never die to them, we never leave them behind. It is only when 
            we give complete attention to a problem and solve it immediately - never carrying it over to the next day, the next minute - 
            that there is solitude. Then, even, if we live in a crowded house or are in a bus, we have solitude. And that solitude indicates 
            a fresh mind, an innocent mind.
            Krishnamurti, Jiddu, Freedom from the Known, NewYork, NY, HarperOne, 1969, pg. 106.


Confronting and solving problems is a painful process, which most of us attempt to avoid. This avoidance results in pain and the hampered ability to grow both mentally and spiritually. Drawing heavily on his own professional psychiatric experience, Peck suggests ways in which confronting and resolving our problems, and suffering through the changes, can enable us to reach a higher level of self-understanding. Dr. Peck discusses the nature of loving relationships: how to recognize true compatibility, how to distinguish dependency from love, how to become one's own person, how to be a more sensitive parent…

Now that I have gotten rid of most of the energies from the past out of my body and energetic fields, it is much, much easier to be in the present moment or in the "now." I don't have to struggle with old energies as they are no longer hanging around or inside of me. I am free to be in the present.


            Some scientists in reviewing this book asked, ‘So what’s new about this work?” Leading-edge 
          scientists are familiar with the concepts proposed herein, and that’s a good thing. The problem is

            If you were happy in all ways and all areas of your life ----- would you ever want to take too many drinks, take those psych drugs, smoke, overeat or take any kind of drug to change what you were feeling?

Just a question for you to consider. I'm not talking about a glass of wine with dinner or a piece of pie for dessert. I'm talking about daily use, lots of use and if it is something that you cannot stop or feel that you could live without at this point.

        If you do any of these things to excess, would you wish for you children to live their lives in the same manner that you are living your life?

            ... because that is what we are teaching our kids about how to handle their problems and their life. Our children learn how to use drugs to handle their problems  because that is what we are teaching them or because they do not know how to handle their feelings or they want to fit in or something.

        As a result of what I have done, I no longer have any desire for drugs, alcohol, smoking, psych drugs or other substances. I do have difficulty with eating too much some days because I am uncomfortable with what I am feeling, but not every day or all day like I used to feel about drugs and alcohol and cigarettes.I'm not perfect and I'm still learning and struggling. What about you?

This is why I feel that we could use some real improvements in programs that would help us heal our wounds and help us learn new skills and such. Maybe it wouldn't solve all of our problems but I think it would go a long way in helping to improve our lives in many ways.

Instead of waiting for someone to read your mind or figure out what you are thinking - how about asking them instead or letting them know what you are thinking?

Very few people can read minds. Instead of being frustrated, resentful, angry or something else because someone doesn't do what you want or need them to do - how about stating your feelings, your likes/dislikes, what you want or need?

Could go a long way to helping things be a little smoother and loving.


 Without any judgment or criticism or pride or anything else - just ask yourself honestly why you do the things you do --- and then listen for the answer. It might surprise you.



Find your own note. Each person has their own musical note. You will know when you find it.        “Why do we like music?”

         Why are we moved by music? One reason may be that the body itself is intrinsically musical, right down to the DNA that
         makes up our genes.


        Dr. Ohno has notated over fifteen songs of the DNA of a variety of living organisms during the past two years. He finds that 
        the more evolved an organism is, the more complicated is the music. The DNA of a single-cell protozoan, for example. 
        translates into a simple four-note repetition. But the music transcribed from human DNA -- e.g. the body's receptor site for
        insulin -- is much more complex.

        Why is sound healing so powerful?

        Every healthy organ and body-part creates a natural resonant frequency with the 
        rest of the body. Each person has his/her own sound or frequency. We often talk 
        about other peoples “wave length” and that we do or don’t resonate with them. 
        This we can understand literally.

I give this information away for free because millions of people need help and our systems are way too slow. We needed help years ago and we need help now. I’m angry that two of my family members have died by suicide and very little is being done that really helps. There are some wonderful community mental health centers that are low cost if you are low income. Some of the rich can afford the treatment needed and the middle class is pretty much out of luck at the moment. Thus, this is my effort to help make some changes. You can start programs in your neighborhood. Talk to psychologists and other mental health professionals to see if you can get something started in your neighborhood. We need everyone’s help if possible. Every effort, no matter how small, will help.

“Literally thousands of studies since the 1950s have asked whether there is a link between exposure to media violence and violent behavior. All but 18 have answered, ‘Yes.’ The evidence from the research is overwhelming. According to the AAP, ‘Extensive research evidence indicates that media violence can contribute to aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, nightmares, and fear of being harmed.’ Watching violent shows is also linked with having less empathy toward others.”

Research shows that unless the body's pH level is slightly alkaline, the body cannot heal itself. So no matter what means you choose to take care of your health, it won't be effective until the pH level is balanced. If your body's pH is not balanced, for example, you cannot effectively assimilate vitamins, minerals and food supplements. Your body pH affects everything.

Aviance, who was then pursuing music and clothing design on the side, had recently been laid off work. “I was unemployed and couldn’t afford a gym membership or fancy diets,” says Aviance. “I realized that walking was the easiest exercise I could do and it cost nothing.

One ounce of wheatgrass juice has the vitamin and mineral equivalent of 2.2 pounds of fresh vegetables. It contains most of the vitamins and minerals needed for human maintenance, including the elusive B12. Many of the benefits of wheatgrass juice stem from the fact that it is a living food, which is a complete protein with about 30 enzymes and is approximately 70% crude chlorophyll.  Wheatgrass Juice helps to stimulate metabolism and contains enzyme systems and an abundance of alkaline minerals. Wheatgrass juice has been proven over many years to benefit people in numerous ways: cleansing the lymph system, building the blood, restoring balance in the body, removing toxic metals from the cells, nourishing the liver and kidneys and restoring vitality.


Members of the pro-life movement spend countless dollars and hours on rallies and lobbying without providing adequate financial and emotional support for women to actually maintain pregnancies. And the majority of women who have abortions cite not being able to afford a child as one of the main reasons for their decision. [emphasis added]


This discovery is hugely important because we know that a lack of oxygen actually stimulates the growth of new blood vessels within a tumor, which in turn leads to or can lead to metastasis and genetic instability within that tumor. Therefore, this research establishes the theory that if cancer tissues with low levels of oxygen (hypoxic tissues) can be made to “breathe in” extra oxygen, or if their oxygen content can be increased, then the tumor’s growth will be slowed and therapy will be improved.


“The physician . . hesitates to take risks for his patients by applying a not-recognized treatment . . I was in a more favorable position. Ninety to ninety-five percent of my patients were far advanced (terminal) cases without any risk to take; either all recognized treatments had failed or the patients were inoperable from the beginning.”

If our lives are going to be at all worthy, it will be because of two factors: What we aim for in life and recognizing who we are. The first may be simply described by saying, "You gotta have high hopes," and we can have no higher aim in life than to do the will of the Father. The second can be understood by grasping why psychologists keep trying to persuade parents to work to build their children's self-esteem. They have observed that, if children do not think they are anything or can do anything, are of no value and unloved, or have absolutely no skills, they will not do anything. They will spend their lives cowering in self-pity and spinning their wheels in ineffective, low-level activity. [emphasis added]


I had a young lady tell me once that she was glad that the violent video games provided an outlet for her anger and rage.

Tell you the story of a very gentle man that I once knew:

To those who didn’t know him at all, he was dirty, smelly and crazy. He wore heavy coats even in the hottest days of summer. He lived in a house piled with trash and other belongings, so thick you could hardly walk through the room. He grew a beard, long and scraggly, and didn’t seem to want to take showers most of the time.

He was also about my age, although you would have to look hard underneath the beard, the hat, the coat and all the other layers. His was a most gentle manner of speech and polite and courteous beyond most people you meet out there today. He loved to walk. He enjoyed jazz music and was taken care of by the locals who knew him and what happened.

See, most people stayed away from the smelly, crazy old man in the heavy coats, but many knew what had happened to this man when he was young: his mother had molested him, even making him have sex with her. Incest at the very least and who knows what else happened to this man when he was young. He had a father whom he lived with but who knows why this man did not protect his child from the woman, his mother, who sexually abused and molested him.

All of the layers protect him from others and from the world. The lack of hygiene, the smell of his body, the heavy coat, the beard, the hat, the shyness, all protect him from the world and from people.

Now, do you still want to poke fun at any of those “crazy” people you see out there, off or on the streets, muttering to themselves, smelling bad, talking foul, being angry or full of rage, taking drugs and doing all manner of strange things that make no sense to you?

Instead of making fun of them or ignoring them, how about asking ourselves what can we do to prevent these things from happening and how we can help this world be a better and healthier place to live?



When scientists examined 551 cases in which men killed their wives, they found that almost half occurred in response to real or imminent separations.  Indeed, men who murder their wives often later admit to being unable to deal with the rejection they felt.

Studies of school shootings, including the 1999 Columbine tragedy, found that thirteen of fifteen incidents involved perpetrators who had experienced significant interpersonal rejection and ostracism from schoolmates. In many cases, shooters specifically targeted students who had bullied, teased, or rejected them in the past, often seeking them out first.

So, how about teaching ourselves and our kids some new emotional life skills?


Just getting rid of the energy doesn’t make me stronger. It just leaves me without any skills to handle the tough stuff. It doesn’t mean that sometimes I don’t just get rid of the energy. Sometimes I do and sometimes that is what needs to happen, but for the most part, I learn so much from my feelings and how to be stronger and more compassionate and understanding with others, that I’m okay with feeling it all. I don’t need to just whisk it away and shove it under the rug anymore.


CH: He Was Shot 3 Times And He Killed Someone At 19. Who He Is Today Will Amaze You

Is it possible to forgive a murderer? What if that murderer is you? This former drug dealer and convicted murderer was in solitary confinement when he had the awakening that would change his life forever.



"The dog pound is a prison for dogs and Bandit was in there. He also was all skin and bones. That means nobody cared for him or what happened to him or nothing. The person that owned him didn't even want him around. Bandit's only crime was that nobody loved or truly cared for him and for that he was put on death row. he only had one day left when you gave him a second chance, right."

    "That's right Anthony!" I quietly responded.

Anthony looked at me a bit puzzled, as if he were surprised that I didn't know the real reason behind the Bandit story. "That's why we need to hear the story over and over again. If a dog that nobody wanted or loved could be given a second chance and make it, then maybe we can too."

There are very good reasons that snakes and cold-blooded reptiles need the sun's warmth to survive.

There seem to be many mysteries in the blood and why it is sacred.

Try asking God if you want the answers to these and other mysteries.

I don't know all the answers but God does show me what I need to know. I have seen and felt that the blood is changed by God and by Christ but I don't know all the answers. There are cold-blooded people and warm or hot-blooded people.

Think about this for a bit.


When I think or do something that goes against love or against God, I have keenly felt the vibrations in my own body. This would be like earthquakes in this world as the vibration of the world is affected by us and our thoughts and action.

Our hearts and what is in them are very powerful. Father and Jesus/Yeshua have shown me very clearly what kinds of thoughts are for love and against love and mostly selfish and thinking of others. The selfish ones can rock your world and take you away from God very quickly. Thoughts are very powerful and an energetic vibration.

I cannot do anything without God's help but they have clearly shown me the differences between selfish and others, fear and love and what the different feelings and emotions can do.

So, if the earthquakes and chaos are increasing- what might this say about our thoughts or what is in our hearts?


To commence Children's Mental Health Week (February 8-14) in the U.K., the Duchess of Cambridge is calling for stronger support for children's emotional well-being. In partnership with Place2BE, an organization that provides emotional support to children in school, Kate Middleton, a vocal supporter of adolescent issues, sat down to discuss the importance of providing young students with the assistance to "cope with life's challenges."

"Every child deserves to grow up knowing their potential and feeling confident that they won't fall at the first hurdle," The Duchess began. "With early support, they can learn to manage their emotions and feelings and know when to seek help," she later added.
