Day 4 of the MKPS re-release with new content. This time around, by request, in addition to our mindfulness and SEL content, we have added content about mental health, substance abuse, phone and gaming addiction, suicide prevention, and trafficking.

Check out this interview with Marnie Grundman, who is a trafficking expert. We spoke about the signs of how to recognize if someone has been trafficked, how to help them, and what to be on the look-out for. We also talked about the importance of kindness. We really don’t know what the person next to us is going through outside of the classroom.

“Tell someone. The shame is not yours. The person who is hurting you is the person who should be ashamed of their behavior.”

“Ask yourself, “Does anyone deserve that? Do I deserve that?” Abusers manipulate the victims into thinking they deserve it, but they don’t. It only takes a moment to be kind, so take a moment every day and be kind to someone because that creates a ripple effect.”

To hear what else she has to say and register for the summit:
