Kids’ tough behaviors are their ways of coping. They may not know another way to express themselves. Acting out is giving a message, but it’s not personal.
PEACH, which stands for Physical and Emotional Awareness for Children Who Are Homeless, teaches children and their parents about good nutrition, physical activity, and how to deal with the stress of being homeless. “Homelessness takes a toll on children. They are sick more often and have more mental health problems."
