Why “The Listeners101?”
- ■ Children, your children, our children and children of others will not always feel comfortabletalking to us their parents or family members or their friends but most of them have a need to want to talk to someone. The Listeners101 gives them that opportunity, to be able to just talk and be listened to without being judged, scolded, rebuked but just heard.
- ■ Many young people are carrying burdens way too big for them, burdens that were just suddenly forced upon them, traumas that landed on them with no warning and they just need to get it off their chest.
- ■ Some are battling with their personal demons, their sexuality, their identity, some have witnessed atrocities and horrendous crimes that they just need to speak to someone about because of the affect it is having on them.
- ■ Some of the young people just want to open up about things they feel no one else will understand.
- ■ Some are going through depression and feel they have to always appear strong and feel they have no one to talk to because friends won’t understand and family just say it’s nothing.
