Before children become
They are just kids
We want them to stay that way!!!
Communication is what works. Bechirot
teaches children to communicate
appropriately in spoken and unspoken
ways, and to hear and read the signals
given by others. When children know
what is really going on they can respond
accordingly. This skill will take them
anywhere they want to go as grownups.
Self Knowledge =
We all want our kids to be happy.
We can achieve that!
The first step toward true contentment is
“self awareness”; it must come from within.
Bechirot empowers children with a positive
“self-image” and helps them develop the
skills they need to make choices that make
them happy & secure.

with parents and children.
The Teacher is always right…
But are they? Bechirot trains teachers to
recognize issues in the classroom and

diffuse potentially volatile situations and
reinforce principles of wise choices.
I t’s all about thekids!!!!
Children don’t like to be told what to do; they
should be in control of their own destiny. It is up
to us to give them the knowledge to effectively
change and regulate their responses so they can
fulfill THEIR mission: to be the best they can be.
That includes living a healthy productive life.

We give children the support and skills necessary to make
healthy choices for themselves. We will work with schools
and other community organizations to create student and
parent workshops that empower students, parents, and
their teachers to examine the choices children are
confronted with on a daily basis and provide tools
necessary to change the lives of our youth by teaching
them to make healthy lifestyle decisions.
