…Because Anxiety Follows Kids BEYOND SCHOOL – At The Physician’s Office, In The Grocery Line, And MORE!!


About The Drive:

Think beyond school because 100% of children coming into the foster system suffer from trauma which effects every moment of their daily life with high amounts of anxiety. This anxiety is many times turned into excess energy, talking, picking, hitting and so on. All around this situation is hard on both the child and caregiver attempting to have the child wait in a doctor’s office, stand still in grocery store line, focus on talking with a therapist, etc.

The goal to help these families is NOT to get them a tool that is inconspicuous but get them fidgets that will help their child to calm themselves and lessen the stress of caregivers trying to go through the tasks of everyday life.

Unlike schools which are concerned about fidgets being a distraction or turned into a toy, foster/parents are more interested in the calming effects.
