The Issue

Adult problems like divorce, domestic violence, and substance abuse unfairly impact the lives of children.

After all, it’s hard to be a care-free kid when surrounded by fear, anger, stress, or neglect. When that’s what childhood looks like, it’s no wonder children struggle to make sense of it all.

We know that adulthood has its challenges, but childhood shouldn’t.
