Challenge Software Program "Helping Children Help Themselves"

The Logic behind this program comes from research on Personality Development and Cognitive-Behvioral Psychology. We understand that we cannot control the Events that take place around us, but we have a great deal of control over the interpretations of those events, which ultimately dictates how we feel.

This is where we need to focus our energy. Through my work with children and adults over the past several years, the majority of individuals who were really struggling spent a great deal of time and energy trying to change the "events" rather than focusing on the area in which they have some control. I also believe that the continued failures of trying to control things that you can't control leads to "Learned Helplessness."

These ideas are the foundation for creating the Challenge Software Program to help children learn this valuable idea and be able to practice it in a fun and engaging way.
