“We all need hope. Sadly, in a world where too many children are suffering from childhood domestic violence and now, with I call, ‘Covid Stress Disorder,’ Calmkins behavioral program provides support and helps kids calm down.
Like Dr. Linda Olson, I too am the eldest of 6 kids. I grew up in a single-parent home filled with trauma/drama. I became a gang leader at the age of 9 and a Black Panther at the age of 12. I suffered from a plethora of adverse childhood experiences that manifested destructive and dangerous behaviors as a young black male on the streets of Oakland, CA. All of these experiences stole what should have been a healthy childhood from me and my family.
Now, as a Traumatologist, I coach young people and adults through crisis management situations, helping families discover their Behavioral SuperPowers™ and giftings, I wish that I had a weighted animal like Hope Bear to help heal my wounds and those of my siblings, back in the day.
Calmkins weighted animals give, they don’t take.
