    'Today is National Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day. Take a minute to appreciate each and every child and make sure you are bringing a compassionate understanding to helping kids with behavioral challenges. Today is a day to remember that when we rethink challenging kids, amazing things can happen.'

    The problem in schools is that ' academics' trumps emotional and socio-moral growth which is a bad thing for kids with challenges
