Child Advocacy

National Scientific Council on the Developing Child

Our programs are centered around the findings of the National Scientific Council on the Developing Child, which promulgate that the core features of emotional development include the ability to identify and understand one's own feelings, to accurately read and comprehend emotional states in others, to manage strong emotions and their expression in a constructive manner, to regulate one's own behavior, to develop empathy for others and to establish and sustain relationships.

Our Approach

We Aim to Build Relationships

Promoting social and emotional development and preventing problems caused by maladaptive development is clearly important to individuals and to society, but how do those socio-emotional skills develop?

Parents who support positive emotional development interact with their children affectionately, show consideration for their feelings, desires and needs, express interest in their daily activities, respect their viewpoints, express pride in their accomplishments and provide encouragement and support during times of stress. This support greatly increases the likelihood that children are less likely to display behavior problems.

Our Framework

Different Approaches to Studies

Childhood Studies is for many born out of frustration with the narrow versions of the child offered by traditional academic discourses and methods of inquiry, especially a rejection of the ways psychology, sociology, and anthropology objectify the child. Our programs use a variety of methods which accommodate young people of all ages aided by multimedia and teambuiding activities.

Infrastructure Development

These activities educate youth around science streams like physics, astronomy and technology as a means of promoting interest in career fields that will help build our country`s infrastructure. We build projects like rockets, towers, hot air balloons and comets.
