Help for Children Here is a list of resources parents can look into that are meant to help kids in all stages of their life become positive successful young adults. Parents should always research the local chapters of these or any organization for themselves, to make sure that their quality is consistent with their national standards for providing safe environments for children

Building a child’s self worth, self esteem, and self respect is a big part of helping them learn how to help themselves. Utilize any of the organizations listed to find help or specific activities that your child can become a part of and grow surrounded in a more positive atmosphere built on good values and respect.
Help for Adults These resources are to help break cycles of behavior that negatively affect your personal lifestyle, your family, your work, or your career as an adult. It is our pride and ego that keeps us from asking for help. Don’t wait till you hit rock bottom to get help. I was that guy! Once I got the help I needed to get my life back on track, it made the biggest difference in my own personal outlook on life, relationships and friendships. I saw things with more clarity and learned how not to self-sabotage different aspects of my life. STOP WAITING AND START LIVING
You can start by sponsoring a seminar in your community with Ray Amanat.
