Doug’s September 11t Resources for Children
Courtesy of Crayola.com: Many of us as parents and educators have special challenges in dealing with our own personal feelings while at the same time trying to help children deal with their fears and grief. The following links may help parents and educators who work with children. The Helping Children Cope section provides child development guidance for these difficult times. The Care & Share Card Program provides children with an outlet to express their thoughts and feelings. The cards children create and send to the Crayola.com Care & Share Card Program will be forwarded to hospitals and rescue workers. We suggest that the Care and Share Card Program be used with adults and school age children, not preschoolers.

The Wash America campaign ended October 31, 2001 with a total of $84,000 in profits. Visit the Scholastic site to read about their accomplishment.
