Did you have a favorite teacher at primary school?
Was there a youth leader who encouraged you when you felt you had failed? Was there an adult who listened when you thought no one cared?
Positive human relationships are essential for children to grow up happy and healthy.
Yet many Australian children lack significant close relationships with a caring adult, other than their parents.
KIDS HOPE AUS. focuses on primary school children because during this phase children are most likely to benefit from a close relationship with an adult. This is when self-esteem and values are learned, and critical academic skills are acquired. Could you be that adult to a child? Talk with the church office about Kids Hope.
