I had a real live-wire group of kids from 6 years old to 12. We did all sorts of games, many of which I planned. We also did activities that were team-building and problem-solving deals, building up their minds and their little bodies.

The kids I counseled were sort of a mess at first. They didn’t know how to work together. They didn’t have much confidence or perseverance. They would just give up if what they were doing didn’t work the first time. I tried to help them get more mature, have more dedication, and just become happier, stronger kids.
